[Gmsh] Closed loop error in simple 2D mesh

I’m not providing the id of elements to the Line Loop; I define the lines in the 5th column of the Element-part of the msh-file.
Furthermore, when I define 3 elements on each side, the program works perfectly. Unfortunately, when I use only 2 elements, like described below, it gives an error.

Kind regards,
Caroline

Line Loop asks for elementary Ids, you are providing the id of elements.
Actually, your msh files does not describe elementary lines :-/

the expression-list on the right hand side should contain the identification numbers of all the elementary lines that constitute the line loop.

Dear all,

I’m trying to generate a simple 1st-order 2D mesh using the following geo-file:
-------------------------------------------------------
Merge “geometry.msh”;
Line Loop(5) = {1,2,3,4};
Plane Surface(1) = {5};
-------------------------------------------------------

In the msh-file (geometry.msh) the outer lines of the geometry (a square) are given:
-------------------------------------------------------
$MeshFormat
2.2 0 8
$EndMeshFormat
$Nodes
8
1  0.00000000E+00  0.00000000E+00  0.00000000E+00
2  5.00000000E-01  0.00000000E+00  0.00000000E+00
3  1.00000000E+00  0.00000000E+00  0.00000000E+00
4  0.00000000E+00  5.00000000E-01  0.00000000E+00
5  1.00000000E+00  5.00000000E-01  0.00000000E+00
6  0.00000000E+00  1.00000000E+00  0.00000000E+00
7  5.00000000E-01  1.00000000E+00  0.00000000E+00
8  1.00000000E+00  1.00000000E+00  0.00000000E+00
$EndNodes
$Elements
8
1 1 2 0 1 1 2
2 1 2 0 1 2 3
3 1 2 0 2 3 5
4 1 2 0 2 5 8
5 1 2 0 3 8 7
6 1 2 0 3 7 6
7 1 2 0 4 6 4
8 1 2 0 4 4 1
$EndElements
-------------------------------------------------------

When I try to execute the code, the error ‘The 1D mesh seems not to be forming a closed loop’ occurs. Does anybody have an idea what could be the issue?
Thanks in advance!

Kind regards,
Caroline
