Solidworks Crashes for Jacobian Mesh Analysis

1. I create a mesh
2. The details of the mesh list that it has >0 % distorted elements (Jacobian)
3. I try to do Jacobian Mesh Analysis
4. Solidworks crashes

I kind of understand why solidworks is crashing, however, what I really need to know, is where these distorted elements are in my model. How do I find that out?

If I can't check the Jacobian Mesh Quality then is there any way to visualize where the distorted elements are occuring?
