ParaView glyphs and slices (very simple)

I'm following the OpenFOAM tutorial cavity (2D flow), and am postprocessing in paraView. I'm trying to make vector plots of the velocity field, so I first highlight the file in the Pipeline, then filter it to CellCenter, then I create a 2D glyph.

However, what I see is an output of 3 z-normal planes of arrows (should just be 1). So I try to slice into the center of my block by slicing the glyph. I select the appropriate plane-normal and origin as directed by the tutorial, but then when I select "apply" all I see is a red box around empty space (no more vectors).

Any help would be awesome!
