Thank you for this response Rob. I did come to the realization that I probably wasn't utilizing journals as effectively as I could.
I would just like to clarify a couple things. To run my journal file, should I be opening Fluent directly, as in the fluent.exe, rather than going through Workbench? Will this allow me to overwrite the default directories?
Also, does it make any difference that my journal file is written based on GUI commands and not TUI commands? I learned my way through Fluent (not too long ago) by navigating purely through the GUI and not the TUI. I realized that the TUI based journals are much more concise and readable than GUI based journals, but I haven't gotten around to learning exactly how to reproduce my GUI commands with TUI commands.
