Default polyCylinder1 node missing???

When I make a new cylinder, and view the attributes via the attribute Editor, the polyCylinder1 tab is missing. I've tried the "show" button and it isn't listed as an option under the "show" menu.

Where did it go??? How do I get it back?

Thanks,
jk

No, I didn't delete the history. It is a new object. A brand new, unedited primitive object with no poly tab.

Problem solved??? It must have been a glitch, because today, it works??? No idea why. Very strange.

Thanks everyone for your input. Maya was just *$%@ing with me again, I guess.

Default That didn't help...

I am having the same problem, but with less luck... The problem is not with the file, but the settings. I started a project at school where the poly tab was there, I came back home and opened it on my computer and the poly tab was gone. I have tried restoring the default settings, and I made a quick glance over every dropdown menu hoping to find an unchecked box.
