  2. In the Line Load Properties dialog box:
    1. Enter or modify the load properties.
    2. On the Distribution tab, select whether you want to attach the load to a part.
    3. Click OK to save the changes.
  3. On the Analysis & design tab, click Load > Line load.
  4. If you selected to attach the load to a part, select the part.
  5. Pick the start point of the load.
  6. Pick the end point of the load.
