Setting date range in reports

I am running version 2.2.1 of gnucash as installed from the PCLinuxOS
repository. There was no gnucash-docs file installed and none in the
repository, so I came to gnucash.org/docs.phtml to consult the help
manual there. I found the following entry there, and also in the help
manual in an older system which is running gnucash 2.0.5:
"5.4.3. To Customize Reports and Graphs
GnuCash reports have many options for customization. To access report
options choose the Options button on the toolbar."
There is no button named "Options" that I can find on the toolbar of
I looked at edit->preferences->"Accounting Period" to find where date
ranges can be set. Changing the ranges here had no visible effect on the
date ranges in several reports that I used for testing.
I am sorry if the problem is simply my bad comprehension, but perhaps
others might have a similar problem trying to find the place to
configure the date range for a report to use. I am unable to tackle the
task of correcting source and then compiling and installing it.
Regards and thanks for a great accounting package..
