Hi,

obviously the option is not within the list (you can check with surfaceFeatureExtract -help). I think the behavior changed in one of the previous versions, you need to provide a surfaceFeatureExtractDict now. Please have a look at https://github.com/OpenFOAM/OpenFOAM...ureExtractDict and the tutorial cases (for example https://github.com/OpenFOAM/OpenFOAM...ureExtractDict) for available options within that dictionary file (you probably don't need to use all of them).

Good luck!
