Is there a way to show the element coordinate systems so that I know what direction the bending moments are in?

Yes. The following steps will display the element coordinate systems:
1. Go to ‘Solution’
2. Right click >> Insert >> Coordinate System >> Elemental Triads
3. Select the geometry in the ‘Scope’ options
4. Evaluate the results.
It will display the elemental co-ordinate system for elements of selected geometry.
