Hello SU2 users,
I'm trying to set up a 2D FFD box for the design tutorial case regarding the 2D naca profile.

After having set the FFD box, I run the command SU2_DEF, but I noticed in the mesh_out.su2 mesh file that the information regarding the FFD_SURFACE_POINTS is missing

Is this the correct procedure for setting the FFD box or I'm missing something? Here attached my .cfg file

I'm working with SU2 v5.0.0

This is the output message of the adjoint log file

----------------------- Preprocessing computations ----------------------
Setting local point connectivity.
Checking the numerical grid orientation of the elements.
Identify edges and vertices.
Computing centers of gravity.
Setting the bound control volume structure.
Storing a mapping from global to local point index.
Reading surface sensitivities at each node from file.

---------- Start gradient evaluation using sensitivity information ----------
Evaluate functional gradient using Finite Differences.
Read the FFD information from mesh file.
There is no FFD box definition. Just in case, check the .su2 file
The input grid doesn't have the entire FFD information!
Press any key to exit...

Thanks for help
