1. Select a plane in visibility tree. Make sure the entity from the visibility tree is selected, not just selecting a surface from model as the entity gives clear selection of the layer on which surface is picked for assigning a joint.

2. Select: Materials > Joints > Add Joint Surface.

Notice the Joint Surface cannot be added on external surface.
