The other way around, those apps are parametric from the ground up and
so they give you the controls all the time. Blender just puts the
creation settings as those do, but is just a cosmetic detail (before
it was popup, now it is mouse travel) because it was not and so far is
not parametric. At least the settings could appear again in case of
undo/redo, but doesn't seem to be the case with a simple cube, it just
shows "Operator".
