Well, Lightwave [8] arrived in the mail yesterday, and I'm working my way through tutorials. This, I recognize, is what seems to be a really ridiculously easy question, but I'm having trouble with it. Once I have created a primitive, is there any way to get back to that primitive's numeric menu and edit the size, number of sections, etc...?

Any help would be great. Thanks folks.

Unfortunately no you cant. You have to use other tools to modify the mesh after you create the primitive.

If you haven't used the same primitive tool (say Box) again, you can delete your first (box) select the tool, and (in the Numeric panel) click Actions, Activate.

You'll recreate your original primitive, but it will still be active (not Made) - you'll be able to use the Numeric panel features to adjust size, segments, radius, etc.
