The new snappyHexMesh includes feature edge handling which may significantly improve the quality of your mesh.
Now my problem is that I need to perform my calculations on an older OpenFoam-Version 1.7.1 where this feature is not supported, yet. So I tried to create the mesh with version 2.0.0 and then use the mesh in Version 1.7.1. Unfortunately the new version 2.0.0 stores faces in a compact list "faceCompactList" which is not recognized in 1.7.1 where only "faceList" is known.

So my question is:

Does anybody know, how to deactivate the usage of faceCompactList and use faceList instead, so I can use the mesh in the older version 1.7.1???
Or maybe you have another idea to overcome this problem....

Thanks a lot
