I am encountering a problem with nodes too close to each other gets merged into one single node automatically. See attached pictures of a structured domain after cutting, the generated new node gets automatically merged with an adjacent node which creates a problematic domain. Thanks for any help!!

Make sure your model size (for database entities) and grid tolerance values are set appropriately for the grid you are trying to create.

See File, Settings...

Thanks! Adjusting model size and tolerances work for me.
