Hi. The physics message window in my ANSYS CFX-Pre interface is completely missing. I have worked without it for a while, but I would really like to have it since it's great for troubleshooting. I have searched the CFX-Pre documentation, the ANSYS customer portal, and the cfd-online forums, but haven't found anything regarding enabling/disabling the phys. msg. window.

I have already tried toggling on/off the 'disable physics validation' setting, thinking that might somehow be related. It's not.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
~Cheers

In CFX-Pre, try edit/options then click "CFX Defaults" or "Workbench defaults".

Glenn, thanks for the input. I gave that a try, using both CFX-Pre and Workbench defaults, but it didn't change anything. It turned out that I had at some point reduced the physics message window to zero width. Kinda embarrassing, I wish my first post here had not been such a classic rookie mistake. I thought I should confess, just in case anyone else has this problem and reads this thread.

From tech support: "If you put your mouse in the graphics viewer window, and then move it down to to the bottom of the graphics window until the cursor turns into an icon representing vertical resizing of a window, click and drag up."
