Importing surface/profile for data writing in Fluent

I have a series of calculations which need to be done on a model geometry, with slightly varying interal dimensions. However there are locations in this geometry which are constant and which I need to extract the data from. I need to run the simulation in transient so I need to define these "lines" during pre-post in order to write and export the data per time step. Since I have to do quite a few, it would be nice to be able to write the coordinates file once, and then just import it each time....
Do you know of any way to import "surfaces" (as per the Fluent definition of a surface) which you can then use to define the locations of the data you need to write?
I tried already to create and read "profiles", with just coordinates but then I cannot the select the profile under surfaces when I try to write the data.
(i attached snapshot of the relevant command window i refer to)
Thanks for your help!
