Issue with Sheet Metal: Forming tools Tutorial

I have been trying the sheet metal: forming tools tutorial for the last week and i have been running into an issue when you get to step

 

"Opening the Model and Inserting a Forming Tool"

 

When it asks you to open the design library and to the sample_louver to the part face, I run into an issue.

 

It imports just like any other design library item, asking me if im trying to make a derived part (i click yes because if i click no, or cancel nothing happens)

 

i then have to use the locate part panel to position the part, different from how the tutorial describes the process.

 

I am able to force the louvers into position, but when i go into the next step it doesnt recognize it as a forming tool. and the only advice the tutorial gives

is to try again when that happens.

 

Im unsure of how to proceed, or where to find a solution. Any help is greatly appreciated, I'm hoping to attempt the certification by the end of the month.
