Hi, I am having difficulties changing the size of the mesh.
I used face sizing and I was trying to edit the element size under the details window.
However, every time I input my value, it always automatically goes back to the default value.
(I was trying to input 0.25 m, and it always goes back to 'Default (0.17678 m)')
Could anyone help me? I am using the 2023 R1 student version.

It's likely the face sizing is conflicting with another mesh setting. What are you trying to mesh here, is it a simple face or a complex curved face. As we don't know what you're meshing it's hard to tell if you're using the best approach. Kindly, upload some snapshots of what you're trying to do.

It is a simple face (1 m * 2 m rectangle)
I was following the tutorial mentioned at https://www.ansys.com/academic/students/ansys-student.
In this tutorial, the instructor drew a rectangle in Ansys Discovery and run the simulation in Ansys Mechanical.
So I followed his steps, created Face Meshing, and tried to adjust the mesh size by using Face Sizing. The images below show what I have at this moment. The mesh I have here is the default size since it does not allow me to change it.

Great. I have done it.
