Let's say I have meshed a GiD file a long time ago and I don't remember the mesh criteria I used. Is there a way to get them for every line, surface and volume in the geometry? Thanks.

Yes, the used options were saved with the geometry.

You can see them in the information showed by

You can open the model and press the menu
Mesh->Mesh options from model
then the current options will be set to the ones of the used when meshing the model.

or you can simply generate the mesh and set the checkbox 'Meshing parameters from model'
meshing_parameters_from_model.png (3.28 KiB) Viewed 1327 times

then for this meshing will be used the options of the model instead of the current ones of Utilities->Preferences...
This is interesting to use the options of the model and preserve your current preferences,
but be careful using this checkbox, the current preferences won't be used and this could be confusing.
