This question already has an answer here:
I'm new to Blender and I've figured out how to make a gear but I have a question!
Shift+A > Mesh > Gears > Gear will add a new default gear to the build area and will bring up an Add Gear menu in the Toolshelf on the left where you can change all aspects of the gear.
But once the gear's object was moved / the interaction mode was changed / any other action was done, the Add Gear menu on the left disappears.
How do I get this menu back?
