@ Kaviresh
Thanks for the ideas. It worked. One additional suggestion, at times you might want to use 'run as administrator' for the license manager.

Even I had the same problem. I couldnt see anything in the Ansys 13 toolbox menu .. After going through the comments in this forum .. I was more than assured that the problem lies somewhere in the licence setup ... So here is what I did ... Checked in Tools>Licence Preferences ... Showed some error ...
Then Started the Ansys, Inc. Licence Manager->Server ANSLIC_ADMIN Utility->ReRead the Licence Manager Settings ... done
then Pressed the Set Licence Preferences for the User ABCDEF(Here my Name Kaviresh)->Then clickedo n the radio button for Ansys 13.0 --- bingo ... then I could see the Toolbox I wanted to use in the Ansys workbench project window ..

Does anybody know how you can have more than 10 forces showing on the mech section of the workbench please?
my software is ansys13/workbench.
when creating a report and it is neccesary to insert previews of forces/loads and others you can only see 10, even though there may be number of them.
i have tried "max number of annotations to show", however this doesn't work.
any ideas please?
