Hello,
I have found out that when I try to decompose a run and there is a pointField (in my case pointDisplacement, I need it for mesh motion) and I also have a globalFaceZone, then the decomposePar application fails.

The error it gives is:

Processor 0: Field transfer

size of field 16952 is not the same as the size of the mesh = 14438
...

Digging into the code I have found out that on processor 0:
mesh.points()=14438
mesh.allPoints()=16952

It seems that "somewhere" one should substitute points with allPoints, but I cannot find where..

Probably when the the globalFaceZone feature has been added, all other field have been corrected accordingly but the pointFields.. or maybe only pointField are affected by the issue since are the only one that depends directly on the points..

Any one can help?
Thanks,
Matteo

Anyway, thanks for your reply. It seems that it is a common problem. However, it seems that there is nobody to solve it.
