Can't save intermediate solutions

I want to create an animation of an analysis. I set the results to a number greater than 0 (i.e., 5, or 10, etc.). When I finish the analysis I click on the results tab of the ribbon and in the interation/step portion of the ribbon, I click the pull-down, and only one result is shown. It won't let me step through the results.
When I go back to check the solver settings I notice that the results is shown as zero (somehow it resets when I click solve). No matter what I try or change I can't get the intermediate results to save.
I've included a picture of my solver settings before I click solve:

Well, from looking at your solver settings I see a few of issues:
(1) I am not sure what kind of analysis you are running, but a step size of 1 sec is probably much too large. Do you have intelligent solution control turned on by chance?
(2) You have set the solver to run a total of 5 time steps with 5 inner iterations (i.e. iterations per time step) but then set it to record your results every 5 time steps. I would only expect to see t=5 in the saved results based on these settings.
If you would like to save intermediate results at every time step change the 'Results' field just under 'Save Intervals' to be 1. If you want to record every other time step set it to 2 and so on.
(3) You also have the 'Table' feature turned on, yet do not show what you have entered. When the table feature is active, the save table you defined trumps the settings you have shown us. Remove the check from 'Table' to use the setting you have shown or click 'Edit...' next to 'Table Editor' to bring up the table.
Hope this helps,
