Can we hide CFX logo on top corner of CFXpostV10?
 
Hi,

We have outputed several contour plots in PNG format. However, CFX logo appeared on every picture that we created. This turned out to be very urgly when we included the pictures in our report. Can we turned it off? We can't find any such option in Post V10.

Thanks for help.

No. That cannot be remove. But if you choose to "print" in a large size, for instance 1800x1200 the logo will be relatively smaller.

Generally i edit the image in paint and remove the logo :)

Or even easier: Crop it in Irfanview.

Hi,

I don't see how the CFX logo can be very ugly. But take a look at this topic from 2003, specially the last post.

I wrote this back in 2003. CFX later changed that workaround so it now cannot be done.

You could edit it out or crop the image to remove the logo, but you cannot produce images without it. There used to be a workaround, but the logo is now imbedded in the viewer.

If you do remove the logo, make sure you include the appropriate credit to CFX in your report.

Hi... We bought the software and of course we have to mention the approach & software used for our calculation. We made quite some contour/vector plots on the same sheet. Because of this CFX logo, we have to manually edit/tidy up each figure, which waste lots of our time.

The idea of forcing CFX logo on each figure sounds very funny.

I put about 12 figures on each page to show the evolution of flow in our machine. Do you think it's necessary to have CFX logo on each figure? My boss asked me to clean this up.. X_X

I would not like to have the microsoft logo on all my reports written with ms word.

This isn't a word processor. CFX was developed by a team of engineers and you are applying their work. It is therefore necessary to credit it (it is also what you agreed to it in the license agreement). It's a responsible thing to do anyway, as results can be system or version dependant, so you should always document where it came from.

There is no problem with removing the logo from images, but the credit must be there. My suggestion is to leave some room at the top of your image and simply crop them.

I understand what you say. However, user should also have the right to choose the way they want to credit it. It's a moral thing but the way CFX do it makes me feel like I'm being treated as a child. I don't mind to have logo appeared on each page but not on every figure. I have hundreds of figures in my report. Can you imagine how much time I have to spend to edit those images? Somehow our company has already paid big dollar in order to use CFX... Just like MS Word, CFX's not a freeware.

Hi Robin,

I always make a point of reading whatever you post on this Message Forum. It is great to have someone from CFX that obviously knows the code well and always gives good advice.

I don't like to knitpick, I have written CFD codes and know that it can be challenging and I understand that you are proud of the work that your company does, that is a great thing, however your comment:

This isn't a word processor. CFX was developed by a team of engineers and you are applying their work.

kind of struck me the wrong way!! Who do you think writes the code behind a Word Processor ... a bunch of monkeys!! A team of "engineers" also writes this code and I am sure that they too are proud of the work that they do and would enjoy as much recognition as possible. Wouldn't it be a strange world if the original works of Shakespeare included the name of the "engineers" that created his pen, ink and paper!!

I do think it is a bit "off" that CFX hardwires the logo onto every plot that is generated. We all appreciate the work that you guys do, and I don't think I have ever read a paper where the author does not describe the code that he is using. For one thing, the paper would be unlikely to get through the review process without this description.

Anyway, maybe at your next team meeting you could mention the concerns of some users to the "higher ups" :) I have to get going now, I have some images to crop ...

I understand and I don't want to rub anyone the wrong way. But there is a difference in that you are applying the models, solution methods, etc. It represents someone else's engineering work, it is not a matter of pride. Anyhow, I appreciate the point about the logo and will suggest what I can.

Unfortunately, there are many examples of papers that are written which do no credit the code.

Kind regards, Robin

Before you respond, understand that I am not trying to diminish your point. If this is a major issue for your company, you should raise it directly with you ANSYS representative. Very few people complain about it, but that is not to say they don't like it. If you don't raise the issue directly, it is unlikely to change. This is really not the right forum to accomplish this.

Regards, Robin

My confidence in the paper review process was severely reduced this morning when I read a paper published in an ASME Journal.

I was looking at Figure 2 and thought that it was interesting how similar it was to Figure 1. Upon further inspection, I realised that it was identical ... as were Figures 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8!! What a JOKE!!

Maybe CFX is actually correct in trying to ensure that its work is recognised by users ... there are obviously people out there that have no idea how to put together a professional paper, report etc ... What is most dishearting is that there are reviewers out there that don't have a clue.

Not that I don't believe you..but could you kindly give us the Journal Name,Volume,Issue Number and pages so that your almost unbelievable story can be validated....

Having the logo permanently affixed to the CFX viewer is essentially a result of the few screwing things up for the many. There are examples out there of the code not being properly credited.

So, your other choice is to quit whining about the logos and spend *zero* time cropping.
