Contact Body View Windows Unfindable

    • Louis Marr

      Hello, I had an display error that led to Ansys Mechanical being opened on a "ghost" display and needed to use the Windows window mover to move the window back onto the desktop. After this issue, the contacts body view windows, which allow for easy viewing of the components involved with a contact, have disappeared entirely. After uninstalling and reinstalling ANSYS R1 2021, Ansys opened on a ghost display once again and the body contact viewers still refuse to show themselves. I am trying to comb through an assembly with over a hundred contacts and not having these windows to manipulate these contacts is making things extremely cumbersome. Has anyone else had an issue similar to this? And is there a way to locate and move these windows, even if they don't show up in the windows task bar while ANSYS mechanical says that they are being displayed. Thanks!
