Default starting a shape

I've noticed in the tutorials and also on Maya PLE, when you go to bring in an object, (nurb, polygon, sub-D) It automaticly places it at center in a specific size. I use Maya 8.0 and when I bring in an object, I have to always size it myself. How can set up my Maya so that it always comes in to a specific size?

Thanks,

Just go to "Create" then go to the primitives of your choice (Polygon, Nurbs) and uncheck "Interactive Creation".

Or you could hold hold down "X" while drawing your object to keep it aligned to the grid.
