Default Paraview always skips Time 0

Hello everyone,

I have a small problem with Paraview. If I load my data from a calculated case, Paraview always skips the Timestep 0, although I uncheck the "Skip Zero Time" option. For some reason this does not happen if I load the data using the "paraFoam" command.

Do I miss some option?

Thanks in advance!

Hey there.
I have this same problem. Did you end up figuring it out or simply reverted tk using paraFoam?

Best regards

Just for future reference.
I also faced that shitty problem and waste some time in it. A possible solution could be,

** In the "0" folder, if you have files with ".orig" extension, please move them somewhere else. A good practise is to create a folder like "0.orig" if you want to use the initial conditions again or you screwed up something.

If you don't like the "safe" default of skipping 0/ (to avoid potential parse problems), it is trivial to change. Unclick the [Skip Zero Time] checkbox, and two lines above (beside "Properties") you will see a diskette icon. Click that to save these changes as your new defaults. Done.

BTW: for a quick comparison of native vs reader plugin:
