Can't find project settings in PyCharm 5.0.3 (Mac OS, newbie)

OK, I feel pretty stupid, but I'm trying to get started with PyCharm CE, and one of the first things I want to do is adjust the Settings for a project. I particular, I want to make the numpy, scipy, and matplotlib packages available, but I'd also just like to explore the available settings. For the life of me, I can't figure out how do this. The only help I can find refers to a wrench icon in the "main toolbar", which I don't see, and under the File Menu there no Settings item, just Default Settings, Import Settings, and Export Settings. I can't find any context menu under my project for Settings. What have I got wrong here? Pycharm 5.0.3 on Mac El Capitan.

Use Cmd-, (hold command and comma simultaneously). In the GUI it is in the PyCharm menu under Preferences.

The PyCharm Getting Started video series on YouTube has videos showing several uses of preferences.
