why does the 3D field electric field feature complie all previous simulations?

After doing a few simulations I noticed that in the 3D electric field feature seemed to keep previous simulations and I can not have it focus on one. I did unpress the ALL button but previous simulations are still rendering.

    I have confirmed this issue and will implement an update containing the fix ASAP.

      At this current time, a viable fix for this interface bug is still being searched for. It is recommended, for the time being, to simply run separate sessions when producing an E-field in order to avoid the overlapped results.

    That is strange. I will look into it, I have not had this problem before.

    In general the program should generate a new field file every time it runs, so I am not sure how it could be combining the fields together. How are you inputting the objects with the built in shapes or with the DDA convert tool?

    In between simulations do you terminate the session and open a new one?

      I have been using both the sample converter tool object and the built in shapes. I haven’t been terminating after a simulation since I wanted to see the difference between two scenarios. I do like the feature of it showing all previous simulations to help compare for the light scattering, extinction, and absorption factors vs wavelength. I first thought that the 3D render was doing the same thing but it overlays the last simulation below the old one. So do I have to terminate the session to see a different 3D image?
