Gate Axis Parting Lines for Plastic Mold

I have a problem with creating a mold on a simple plastic part. 

I'm on the part where I put in the Gates and connect them to the runner.

The error says "The gate axis is not on the parting lines. Change the point definition or change the gate type."

I tried to change the gate type from edge gate to fan gate, since the plastic part is just a simple flat plate. 

I'm relatively new to Inventor but the tutorials don't help as much as what the parting lines mean.

This is my first project so I'm still trying to understand how the Inventor Mold Automation works. 


I have attached the files so it would be easier for you to see just in case. 


Thank you.
