Select reference geometry for orthotropic material

Hi everyone,

 

I am strucked trying to create orthotropic materials (plywood and carbon-fiber composite).

 

When I want to save a new material, I get the message "No all mandatory properties have been selected". I am quite confident it is because I didn't select a reference geometry.

Problem is I can't select a reference geometry. I have created axis, planes and CSYS reference geometry then I have tried to select them in the modelling window and in the simulation mode, no success.

 

Basically, my problem is the same as this post. But answer doesn't work for me.

 

Here a picture of my screen when I can't select any reference geometry.

Any ideas ?

 

Cheers.
