I am using CFX-Mesh in Ansys 12 to create a mesh for Fluent. When I load the mesh into Fluent, I get a warning that skewness exceeds 0.98. In Gambit, you could set a filter to see where these cells exist, but I cannot find a way to do this in CFX-Mesh. Is there a way to do this in CFX-Mesh?
On a side note, if you have any recommendations for preventing such cells in the first place and/or recommendations on the best way to fix skewed cells, please post your insight.

Try the latest version, 12.0, so you can view quality metrics in ANSYS Meshing...

In 12.1, they also have a histogram tool that allows you to display the elements in each quality range.
