Hello,
I have an edge with nodes created as I want (this edge is meshed with a boudary layer)

I would like to have the exactly same position of nodes for the edge in front of this one. How can I do that? Is there a way to copy/paste nodes?

I found a way to let gambit mesh a face without specifying nodes on all the edges but gambit doens't mesh it the way I want.

thanks for the help

In the edge meshing tool, click first on your previous edge (already meshed), and then on the other. Check if the option "Use first edge settings" is enabled.
It should work

This was a good idea but this doesn't work because of the boudary layer...

delete your BL, mesh your opposite edge, and re-create your BL

but the things is that I want it mesh as the boundary layer but I cannot put a BL there because it points in the wrong direction and I don't know how to change the direction of BL (the arrow gambits shows when creating one)

thnaks for the help!

if you have a middle click on your mouse, you can use use it to switch BL-direction
