Cloth not working in scene with existing model

So, I have this weird conundrum and wondering what might cause it.

I have a scene with a character, and I wanted to test having a simple cloth fall over her head, but if I create a plane over her head, press the cloth button in the physics tab and alt+a nothing happens. If I do the same steps in a clean scene (Blender startup scene), the cloth starts to fall immediately.


In the cloth settings, cache, have you tried baking it? I usually set the end frame to maybe 50, just to make sure it’s more or less working, just click ‘Bake’

Thanks, that did it :slight_smile:
