      Is there a possibility/option to enlarge the "show Fiber Direction"-arrows in Ansys ACP (Pre)? For reasons of viewing. (green arrows in the picture below)

      I do not believe we can. I will double-check to confirm.

      So in 2022r1, which was just released in the past week, you can.

      Can you please try this. Click on that icon in the toolbar to bring up the menu.

      I have to ask again about one thing. I have now also opened a second model in Workbench 2022R1 which I created in WB 2021R1. When I want to edit ACP Pre here, I get the warnings:
      Execution of command db.material_data.open('C:\\Program Files\ANSYS Inc\\ANSYS Student\\v221\\ACP\databases\\materials.acpMdb')
      Execution of command db.run_script(path='C:\Users\mylocalfilepath\dp0\ACP-Pre\ACP\runACP.py', locals=locals()) ignored.
      and the models cannot be opened. There is only a empty white window of ACP.
      What is the reason for this? Are the models not upward compatible?

      Let me check for you and see if developers can chime in. Thanks.

      I meant to ask but can you first confirm on other models that you see this behavior on not just one project, but multiple?
      Thanks

      I can see this behaviour on all projects. Also when I create new projects now. The error appears as soon as i want to edit acp (pre). Geometry import mesh creation and similar works. Thanks in advance

      It looks like the first path is formatted wrong.
      'C:\\Program Files\ANSYS Inc\\ANSYS Student\\v221\\ACP\databases\\materials.acpMdb'
      It does not have double backslashes everywhere but otherwise, the path seems OK if WB is installed under
      C:\Program Files\ANSYS Inc\ANSYS Student\v221. So I am not sure if that causes the issue.
      Regarding the 2ndissue: Are the additional error messages? Can you share the ACP log filein
      %appdata%\Ansys\v221\ACP?
      Then after getting that data you can try and delete the appdata (%appdata%\Ansys\v221\ACP)of ACP and try again. So first close Ansys Workbench, then go to that folder (you can type %appdata% in the windows search bar) then navigate to the ACP folder. Inside that ACP folder is a v221 folder. You can delete that v221 folder and the data in it.

      Please let us know how it goes. Thanks.

      Thanks for the answer. There was actually another error message. I overlooked this one at first. It was something like: 'StandardShellView' has no attribute 'shell'.
      The sad part is I was too fast with the deleting of the log files. Because after i deleted the folder of the log files it works again without error message so far. Therefore, I can no longer send a log file with the error messages. But I would report again if the error occurs again. Do you have any idea what could have caused it?
