    To anyone having an issue with the limit to bounding box not coming up- click on limit to bounding box. With the guidegroom_hairgen node selected click the move tool, and hit enter over the viewport. This should bring up the move handles in the viewport so you can move the box around and scale it to where you want it. This worked for me.
