Simulation stress display controls

When viewing Simulation stress results, if I select 'stress intensity' as the display result, Solidworks switches to an arrow plot instead of a contour plot. If I then change back to (say) Von Mises stress, Solidworks continues to give me an arrow plot. A similar thing happens if you select 'Energy Norm Error'. The displayed plot is constant colours across individual element faces, and then when you try to display Von Mises stress it also displays it on a 'per element' basis. I assume there is something somewhere in the options that is being toggled for the stress intensity and Energy Error Norm displays that isn't being set back when you select a stress display, but I'm not finding it. Can someone tell me where this is?
