Default Transfer of Data from "Solution" to "Results"

I am running the standard FLUENT package with: geometry -> mesh -> setup -> solution -> results. However, when I am in "solution" I can view all the contour plots that I need, TotalP, Vorticity, Turbulent Energy, but when I move on to "Results" I am limited in what I can choose from. Its like CFD-Post isnt picking up all of the data generated by the fluent solution block. Any help?

P.S. I know if I manually export the data from the "solution" block and manually load it in "results" then I do indeed get all the values I want to plot.

Make sure to select all quantities you want to write in the 'Data file Quantities' option from the Run calculation panel.

Thanks you are awesome! I am running a parametric optimization simulation so I wanted to change the output the one time, and have it automatically output exactly what I wanted for all of my design points without doing it manually. Thanks again!

Edit: Is there a way to save the settings in CFD-Post, such as zoom level and contour ranges, so that they will be the same for every design point?

I am not sure. But I can check and let you know

I appreciate it. If I create new figures and display those, it will save the contour value ranges and the titles, but the zoom level always defaults back to "fit to screen." I need the zoom levels to stay exactly as I set for the first design point, for every design point, because I will be making an animation of all the design points.

Did you try this?

Yes. The figure windows always default back to "zoom to fit" levels on each successive design point.

Edit:

Last December the guy in that thread posted this code to help people control the views and zoom of their CFD-Post views and images:
VIEW:View 2
Angular Coord Shift = 0.0
Auto Center = false
Axis Visibility = true
Border Visibility = false
Camera Mode = User Specified
Clip Scene = false
Coord Transform = Cartesian
Hide Difference Case = false
Highlight Type = Surface Mesh
Is A Figure = false
Projection = Orthographic
Ruler Visibility = true
Standard View = Isometric Y
CAMERA:
Option = Pivot Point and Quaternion
Pan = 0,0
Pivot Point = 0.8,0,0
Rotation = 0, 0, 0
Rotation Quaternion = 0,0,0,0
Scale = 0.8
Send To Viewer = True
END
END.


Is there a way to make this code run every time the CFD-Post is updated? I am running multiple design points and would like the camera views to be exactly the same every time. This code is a start, but I have to manually execute it inside the CFD-Post window for every design point.

Edit2: I have been experimenting with running CFDPost in -line mode, but it is difficult to get it to load my results and then display the proper views without the user interface.
