Default Gambit face link mesh, please help

I am trying to link mesh two faces within a channel. The vertical edges of the two faces have concentrated nodes towards the edge and the horizontal edges have equally spaced nodes. when i link the meshes, the vertical and horizontal node spacings switch on one of the faces. Can anybody explain why this is happening.

Thanks in advance

The direction of the orientation may be wrong when linking your face. You should watch the arrows when you're selecting the faces to determine if you need to use the reverse orientation or not. Or, just try it with the reverse orientation option checked and see if that's better.

Hope this helps, Jason
