Default Parafoam, Record/Play Test: Wrong data displayed

Hello everyone,
I'm trying to make the postprocessing of my data a bit easier by automatizing the creation of the tresholds, slices etc. with the record/play test feature.

What I am recording: Create a treshold of the cell data for "alphasteel".
What the script does when I test it: Creates atreshold of the point data for "alphasteel".

This is the code for that action in the script:
<pqevent object="pqClientMainWindow/menubar/menuFilters/pqProxyGroupMenuManager0/Threshold" command="activate" arguments="" />
<pqevent object="pqClientMainWindow/proxyTabDock/proxyTabWidget/qt_tabwidget_stackedwidget/objectInspector/ScrollArea/qt_scrollarea_viewport/PanelArea/Editor/SelectInputScalars" command="set_string" arguments="alphasteel" />

I think the problem is that the names for both the point and the cell data are the same (alphasteel) and the script cannot tell them apart despite both of them being separate entries in the dropdown menu.

Is there a way to discern between cell/point data in the automatic post processing (without changing the solver and redoing all the simulations)?

Thanks in any case!

Edit (solution):
If anyone has a similar problem, use File -> Save State instead. Then use Load State on another simulation and manually select the correct .parafoam file for the state to be used on.
