Group: I am having trouble with the PlotRange option in PlotVectorField[]. See the following. clrFunc[xmin_,xmax_][x_]:=Hue[Abs[.8*(x-xmin)/(xmax-xmin)]]; ident[x_]:=1; PlotVectorField[ {Sin[x], Cos[y]}, {x, 0, Pi}, {y, 0,Pi}, PlotPoints->15,ColorFunction->clrFunc[1,0], ScaleFactor->.2,VectorHeads->True, Background->GrayLevel[0], ScaleFunction->ident,PlotRange->{-1,1}]; The above works okay if PlotRange->Automatic. Setting PlotRange->{-1,1} renders the lower half of the plot. I need to be able to fix the min. and max. range of the plot because I like to compare this with other plots whose vector magnitudes may be smaller or greater on average. The PlotVectorField function will rescale the values so that the arrows will fit okay. Thanks, Lawrence
