I am having a couple of issues with capturing summary images. 

 

1) For example, if there are 3 designs within my design study and I "Capture Summary Image" on design 2, there are then 3 images in the Decision Center, like there should be.  After a "Update all Images" click, I have 3 updated images, like I should.  However, not all the images show the same thing.  I have a box within a compartment.  The image on which I performed "Capture Summary Image" is what I wanted, an ISO view of the box (shaded with thermal gradient) minus the surrounding compartment.  But in the other two summary images a thermal ISO view is shown of the compartment, which is hiding the box of interest.

 

2) If I change my viewport to 2 or 4 panes, the images in each pane are an extreme close-up.  When I try to zoom out (middle mouse button) or perform a "Zoom to fit", all the images disappear.

 

Are these things that need to be refined in software updates or am I doing something wrong here?

1. This can happen depending on the geometry. We try hard to keep the associativity of the views in check, but depending on what sort of booleans happen on the geometry, we can lose those settings. You can go into the individual setting and change the display and then "lock" the view to keep it that way.

 

2. the extreme zoom seems to be a bug. When you hit home, they should center on the screen.

 

What version are you running?

I am running Autodesk Simulation CFD 2012.

 

Regarding the zoom issue, where is the "home" button?
