Operator section in toolbar

I have seen this section of the Toolbar in some tutorial, but I can’t seem to be able to access it. Can someone help me find it? All I can see at the bottom of the Toolbar is this section with the name “Mesh Options” but I can’t expand it to see any more options other than “Mirror X.” I’m confused. :confused:

You’re using 2.5 right?

So if you click on the little arrow to the left of the text “Mesh Options”, it won’t expand? Screenshot please.

Thanks for the quick reply! I’m attaching a screenshot of the area in question. When I click on the arrow, it expands to show this option only. I’d like to load the blender default file, but I don’t know how to do that. Reload factory settings gets me my own custom default file.


This area shows additional options/settings dependant on the operation you are currently using. For example, add a sphere and this section will show the options avaialble to you such as number of divisions, radius etc.


Thanks for the reply. I know that area is supposed to show options pertinent to the operation at hand. The problem is that it does not show anything. When I create a sphere, for example, I don’t see any options for changing the number of divisions, etc. I can’t even drag the area to make it bigger. Right now I’m thinking that I’d like to restore the default file, but I can’t see an option to do this, like in the old blender. Also, I think this may be related to the specific version of blender I’m using (OSX Intel), and perhaps this hasn’t been implemented yet. Any other ideas? Please?

OK, I found the solution. I needed to click on the plus sign at the other end of the screen to make the Operator function appear. Here’s a pic. I hope it helps someone else.
