How to enable the Search Assistant in 6.5.0?

Path Finder

I am using 6.5.0 of Splunk with the Free license install. When in the Search and Reporting screen, I get no Search Assistant. I would like to have that available but can't figure out how to get it turned on.

Suggestions???

Please follow these steps
1. On the Splunk bar, select [Useraccountname] > Account Settings.
2. Under the Search section, look for Search assistant and select Compact, Full, or None. Click Save.
3. The None mode turns the search assistant off.

In the free license, there is no such entry in the Splunk bar to be able to do that. Is there some way to turn it on again with the free license?

I down voted this answer because user asked for how to do it in free license mode. It's not possible this way.

it's a bug and will be fixed in 6.5.1
after 6.5.1, splunk assistant under free license will use Compact mode by default and the mode can't be changed
