In Simulation at 8.1, I can define a local cylindrical co-ordinate system but I cannot seem to use this for applying loads or displacements. Why is this?

At 8.0 and earlier releases users could only use local co-ordinate systems for post-processing results ` both cartesian and cylindrical. For example, radial and hoop stresses could be viewed for a pressure vessel. At 8.1, users can now start to use local co-ordinate systems for applying displacements and forces. As this is the first release, only cartesian co-ordinate systems are available at this time. Cylindrical co-ordinate systems are planned for a future release.
