Curve Guides not affecting fur

So, I recently, finally, created fur that doesn’t look like horrible trash. However, the fur doesn’t cover everywhere (there’s a few bald patches), so I need some cure guides to cover that up. I’ve just been testing, but the tutorials I’ve seen say that adding a forcefield or curve guide will instantly effect the fur.

Not happening.

Here’s the blend:
Perhaps someone can fix this? You can see the curve guide up by the head, but it’s not doing anything.

Curve guides and forces are layer-specific; put your guide on the same layer as the emitter. You also may have to press Recalc All in the particles tab.

Awesome, thanks
