l used about this before. And l think it is easy. The pivotal thing that should be noticed is that the save command must be delete from journal file. Try it and you will know.

Gambit is not so intelligent , so when you change the parameters in the journal , and then save the dbs as another name.

Is Gambit as intelligent as repeating a process (e.g. mesh generation)until a condition being met (e.g. a predetermined quality for mesh)?

Maybe, and l think that mesh is a difficult work , the parameter need to be change depending on the case ,so l just create the geometry by journal and mesh it myself.

It is a good idea to create and use a journal. To create your own journal, go to: FILE->RUN JOURNAL -> select CURRENT JOURNAL and EDIT/RUN-> ACCEPT Delect every thing in that journal and then save on a new name.

Most of the time I use this command as the first one (you can put your comment before): reset

Use "/" before any comment, as an example: / delect and reset every thing reset

A good starting point is to do few step in the GUI and then go to FILE->VIEW FILE in order to see the command you just did using the GUI. You can copy these command in your journal.

If you want to define some variables use "$" before there names:

/ define thickness to 1 cm $thickness=0.01

Then you can use "$thickness" instead of number in the journal.

Some important "enter" did not appear in my previous message. Here is again.

May be I was not clair. I suggest you to learn the text command (it is what you need to write a journal) using the GUI instead of searching in the manual. For every thing you do in the GUI, the corresponding text command is writen in a journal file. However, it is often best to don't use directly this journal as there are probably to much useless lines (and may be unwanted commands). It need some work to learn the basic of journal file, but it's worth.

I often execute my journal after adding some commands to make sure that there are no bug. That's why my first command is "reset" (in order to start from scratch).
