Reading ANSYS CFX definition files

    • Daniel Holder

      Hi all,

      I am wondering if there is any way to properly read ANSYS CFX .def setup files using notepad?

      I need to read view setup conditions without opening the file in ANSYS CFX.

      However, when I do the files open up staggered and extremely difficult to read properly. See image below.


      I know that I can manipulate the window size so it becomes slightly less staggered, but it is difficult to make it fully readible due to their file size.

      I don't need to edit these files, just extract/reference some of the setup information.

      Any suggestions on applications to read these files easily would be greatly appreciated.

      Hi Daniel,

      In Notepad, try turning off 'Word Wrap'. You can also try Notepad++ or Wordpad instead.
