I have version 18.2 downloaded on my laptop and I'm having trouble adding a surface monitor, on older versions you double clicked "monitors" and the option to add a surface monitor came up in the "task page" but clicking on "monitors" in version 18.2 does not make anything come up in the "task page"

Thank you.


Continuing into the post processing and the results section I tried to create a chart with "X" as the X-axis and "YPlus" as the Y-axis but "YPlus" is not an available variable in the data selection as it was in older versions. How can I do this?

Do you have plot data for Y+ from Fluent to import? If no then please get your Y+ plot in Fluent and export the file. Then explore CFD-Post options.

Thank u kgriffin13 and Mr. Vishal Ganore. I can't find some features of old version like File name and X axis in version 18.2. Please teach me.

Generate the report file using first step (in surface report definition, activate report file and report plot, make sure you add def file under selected report definition). Step 2 is to explore report plot.
