    Sure can. and this catches all new IV users out, what you have to do is:

    1. Click work plane
    (bottom left of screen is the browser bar in there is ORIGIN
    2. Click Origin then select a plane ZX
    3. Touch the side of the cylinder

    then(im sure you alreay know what to do next but i'll throw it in anyway)
    Sketch/touch the new plane/point button/return /hole feature. JOB DONE

    If in doubt scale and don't ask!
