This is very confusing.
Sorry, a small tangent there

Are you displaying all the points? In solver manager, right click on the monitor point graph and select Monitor Properties, then Range Settings. Under Timestep Range Mode you can select whether it shows all points or only a subset.

Yep, I go to monitor properties, set 'range settings' to 'display all', put 'plot data' by 'simulation time', the run is for 5 seconds at a time step of 0.01. Yet for every simulation, it stops plotting the monitor points even though the run keeps on going. I exported the results to excel to see if perhaps I could access them there but still no luck.

Something weird is happening with your simulation. I have used this feature many times and it works just fine for any length simulation.

Does the simulation continue otherwise OK? That is, the output file is still being written, the residuals are still coming up on the solver manager and when you stop the run the results file is written?

Yep, the run still keeps on going, a results file is written, all the residual values can still be seen. Everything works perfectly except that the monitor points just don't plot. They reach a certain time and stop, even though the simulation is running iterations for time steps way past those shown in the monitor graphs.
