Pausing a calculation
 
Forgive this dumb question, but I'm a student who is relatively inexperienced with Fluent. I'm currently running Fluent 12 and am running a calculation that will take several hours. How do I stop the calculation and resume it later? I haven`t started the calculation yet, so if it's something that I have to do before running, it is ok. Thanks for the help.

On Fluent 6.3, it was possible to "pause" the iterations by clicking on Cancel button, or (ctrl-c combination). Then just write case and data.

Thanks, I quickly realized how simple it was; clicking cancel works. I guess I was overthinking it a bit.
