assafwei is on a distinguished road

The subject dont quite explain what I am wondering about so let me explain:
When for example I want to define boundary conditions in Fluent, I am selecting it by "named selections" within the boundary condition menu. Usually this is OK, but if the model has alot of BCs, and not all of them make sense (when I go back to a model I did a long time ago for example) it is very dificult to remember which named selection belongs to which surface or BC zone. Is there a way to do either of the following within Fluent :
1. Display some legend with colors indicating which surface belongs to which named selection.
2. color code the surfaces when you put the mouse on them or show their name.
If not one of the above, is there a way to make it easier to select multiple BCs?
except of course just giving good names and remembering what you did in the model...
