newbie help with generative analysis

Hi all i hope you can help! We have recently changed over to using catia at work and im having a few teething problems:rolleyes: most of which ive managed to sort! As silly as it sounds when i try and run a static simulation everything goes well until i try and add loads or restraints because well errr the tool bars aren't there!! ive followed various tutorials and guides but i have no load or restraint tool bar available?!?!

Any ideas? they are checked in the view tool bars menu so im assuming they should pop up when i click the restrain or load sub tree?

any help gratefully appreciated

As per my understanding of youtr problem, your Tool bar is available to giove load, but disabled.
If that is the case, please click the "Mesh" tool, (Which is like trianle) and the load toolbar will be activated.
