# 12.1 VectorPlot - How to show differing magnitudes in the new implementation

I'm graphing vector fields for a class. Magnitude is important at least initially. In 12.0 and earlier VectorPlot plotted the different magnitudes as length. In 12.1 VectorPlot represents magnitude by color. Nice options too, but I can't figure out how to get the vector fields to show vector magnitude. VectorScaling and VectorScale don't seem to help. Thanks.

• To get vectors of different length, use: VectorScaling -> Automatic Jan 30, 2021 at 10:47
• OK, thanks. I'll give it a try. Jan 30, 2021 at 16:30
