Problem plotting results with symmetry visualisation on.

I want to plot some contact parameters but they keep disappearing when having symmetry visualisation turned on (if scoped to element id or material id).

This pic with symmetry on:

Symmetry off


This on with symmetry off:



It works when scoping to all geometry but some results are flipped, is there a way to make them on on side! (see pic)


Thanks in advance!

They are three different contacts.
Changing contact type to asymmetric did work! ( additionally i had to flip the contact pairs to have the plot on the right side) 
It works when scoping to all bodies, but not to material/element id. Nonetheless it does the job!
Thanks Aniket!

Ansys staff can not download images or other attachments on the student portal, so if you want to reach a larger audience to get answers from, please insert the images inline. (which you've done)

Can you try and change the contact behavior to asymmetric and see if that helps? Is it a single contact that is shown in the image 3 above?
