Hey @jaimoitori, thanks for bringing this to our attention.

 

Can you check if you have the 'online-only files on Mac' option in your account settings enabled?

 

If not, make sure to enable it, and then give the app some time to update.

 

If you see that it's not updating after a while, please quit the app and re-open it.

 

Let me know how it goes.
