How to display path lines heading towards only one outlet? Also, how to count them?

      I want to display flow pathlines going towards only one outlet in a simulation. I understand you can release pathlines from a surface, which shows you how flow moves away from a surface (which is useful for showing flow out of an inlet), but I don't know how to display flow going only into 1 outlet. See below model - I want to show flow going into the 'leak' outlet at the top:

      Basic question: Do you have flow going to the small leak outlet?. With pathlines are just traced of massless particles being advected by the fluid velocity.n

      You can use reversal flow direction using the option reverse by emitting from the leak outlet.n

      Thankyou, reversal flow has worked. Is it possible to create a plot with the coordinates of the start positions of these pathlines?n
