Wish when you created cylinder you could add a hole size you wanted and a depth or through  on center.
It would be easy to add these to the 3d menu while creating a cylinder. This would also create a tube at the same time or just a cylinder without a hole.

In order to add hole first draw cylinder then insert a point by selecting the the "By Facet" Workplane on the facet where you want to add hole.Go to "Modify"-->"Modify 3D Objects" and select Hole.Click on the point that you'e inserted and a preview for the hole''ll be shown.Enter the diameter,scale depth or select hole type accordingly in the properties window then select finish from local menu and hole inserted.

If using Platinum, I think it would be easier to Simple Extrude a Circle, then select the extrusion and use the "Offset" option in Properties/Selection Info palette to make the hole. You could set the Offset option in Properties prior to extruding, but then you would need to turn it back to zero.
