Displaying heat flux within solid

I am doing Conjugate Heat Transfer problem in Fluent. I have couple of solids which are in thermal contact with each other, and some of them are in contact with Fluid.
I want to be able to plot heat flux vectors within solids to visualize the heat flow.
I can plot it at the interface between Solid/Fluid zones in Fluent.
But not able to plot anything other than temperature for/within Solids. Is there a way that I can plot in Fluent?
For your information, when I did pure conduction analysis in Ansys thermal, I was able to visualize the flow of heat within solids, and it is nice to understand how is the direction of heat flow.
Please help me if you can. Thanks in advance.

No you can't. As there is no flow on a solid, it just shows statics.
