Overlaying contours, vectors, etc.
Is there any way of displaying contours and vectors at the same time, for instance, I would like to see contours of volume fraction amd velocity vectors in the same display. Can Fluent do this, or will I have to think via layers in Paint Shop Pro, for example.

Thanks in advance

Re: Overlaying contours, vectors, etc.
You plot the first graph and then you go to Display/Scene and check "Overlays". Anything you plot now, will be displayed over the previous plot(s). Be carefull of what you plot first and what second. For example if you plot vectors and then filled contours of pressure, the vectors will bisappear. The correct order is the other way round. You can continue to overlay plots, until you uncheck the overlay option.
