Simple Pendulum

I am a student of physics, and I'm developing an application that involves a simple pendulum. But the support pendulum swings along with the movement of the pendulum itself. How can I fix this?

Check the X and Y properties of the view element which should not move, and make sure they are not linked to model variables.

If still in doubt, please attach your example, so that I can have a look at it.

Well, believe everything you asked me to check, is correct. I ask that you please take a look at the file.

Hello Francisco Esquembre, I met with my teacher and together we can solve the problem that was described in the topic. I would like to thank for their support, and if anyone wants the file to take a look, just tell me. Thank you.
