Export node number and coordinates

I was wondering if it is possible to export the node numbers with their coordinates of a mesh.

Second question, if I use CFX-Post you can create 'points' or 'cloud points' to plot, for example the pressure of each timestep. When I create a point I have to type the node number. Is it also possible to click on a node in the model itself, because it's very hard to find the right node number for a particular place in the model

Kind regards.

Yes, you do the export in CFD-Post.

You cannot click on the model to my knowledge to place points.

Hello everbody, I have a question concerning the term of nodes in CFX post.
I analyse wall condensation on the surface of the chimney. I want to analyse mass concentration, density in choosen location (based on nodes) on the wall. So far I can define a point in node:

zmienna5=probe(H2O.Mass Fraction)@Point 325

From CFX Pre I know that my boundary wall is

BOUNDARY: Condensing Wall
Boundary Type = WALL
Location = F9.6
Could you tell me how can I get numbers of nodes located in F9.6 (on the wall)?
