it doesn't have "topology estimate factor zif"
cfx 12.1 gives this error for my simulation:

ERROR #001100279 has occurred in subroutine ErrAction.
SYMASS_ZIFCS_EL: The solver ran out of temporary space while building a linked list for a domain interface. Try setting the expert parameter "topology estimate factor zif" to a value greater than 1.0. Values higher than 1.2 should not be necessary.

but in expert parameter it doesnt have "topology estimate factor zif" option!! it just has "topology estimate factor" what should I do with this error?
I found this option in cfx 13 but not in cfx 12.1

normally, you should find it here:

=> simulation/flow analysis/solver/insert/expert...

it would surprise me, if v.12 doesn't have this paramter

I'm surprised too!
I searched it in expert parameter---->convergence
it has "topology estimate factor" but not "topology estimate factor zif"
I'm really confused I've checked it 10 times!!
I couldn't find it even in cfx 12.1 help.
I know that this option is on cfx 13.can anybody check it on cfx 12.1 please?
