Improvement to transient residual plots


It’s very hard to see at a glance if a transient simulation is converging, usually, I check the log to ensure that all residuals become low and that global continuity is low. However, I would quite like to see this on the residual plot or have another plot that shows this. I think other CFD software’s have this in some form but I am only familiar with a few, however all I really want to see final residual. Might it be beneficial to others to see initial and final?

Also plotting other things like global continuity errors would be helpful, but maybe just a bit more control over what is displayed would be a better solution to this requirement?
