Power and Ground Plane

I am not facing any problem with adding a plane layer into my PCB through Layer Stack Manager. But my problem is when I trying to assign a plane layer to a Net.

every one explain it like it is only to double click on the plane layer on PCB editor, but I do it a lot and nothing appear.

does there any different way to assign a plane layer to a Net ?

Thank you

Make sure that the selection filter has "other" enabled (properties panel)

Thank you for your reply.

Now, if you double click on the board region, you should get the question to connect the plane to a net.
Oh, and make sure that the plane layer is active, possible use the single layer mode just to make sure.

If it still does not work then I am out of ideas. I do not work with planes myself, so I have very little experience with it.
