Finding the grid spacing slider bar

Can someone please tell me where the grid spacing slider bar is?  I want to tighten it up so that I can see more velocity vectors.

I have the global velocity vectors turned on and the view set to outline.  the grid sitting is nowhere in sight.

Also, is there an easier way to get info on a specific topic, such as traditional product documentation in a pdf form?  Or do I have to go out and mine the web to figure out how this works?  The search function in the header bar is pretty useless as I usually get a web page with and autodesk ad and no search results available.

Please use plain text.

When I click on the question mark in the vector settings dialog box I get a wiki page with "Your search - wikihelp.autodesk.com?adskContextId=PLANE_CONTROLS&language=enu&release ... - did not match any documents".

I hope someone has the intent of making the user documentation for this program better at some point.  One would think that a program of this level would have this pretty well under control.

Please use plain text.

After creating a plane for vectors, hit edit (Planes->Edit).

The Plane Control Vector settings tab has length and spacing sliders.

 

Two solutions for accessing help:

 

A quick fix: Create desktop shortcut to:  

http://help.autodesk.com/view/SCDSE/2014/ENU/

You will be accessing online help, the help CFD help buttons still won't work.

 

Or better, install all CFD help system locally on your PC. Follow these instructions:

http://usa.autodesk.com/adsk/servlet/ps/dl/item?siteID=123112&id=21208244&linkID=18154757

All help items can now be accessed from within the CFD, as intended.
