I'm new to blender and I have a problem that I can't solve and where the internet won't help me. I have a column and want to make it look like it was cut. So I want that the upper vertice goes into the blue circle and that the other vertices makes a straight line to the lower vertice. I tried to use the proportional edit tool but none of the meshes solves the problem. So is it possible to use the proportional editing but fixing a vertice and making the other vertices do a straight line between the fixe vertice and the edit one ?

Add a cube, and position it so that its lower face sits where you'd like the cylinder's vertices to be. The tip of the cylinder should be inside the cube.

Cube

Select the cylinder. In the Modifier Properties tab, on the right-hand side pannel, add a Boolean modifier. Make sure it's set to Difference and, under object, select the cube (be aware that there might be many cubes in your scene; make sure to select the right one).

Boolean

Your cylinder should now bear a cut as the one you described. If evertyhing seems to be in order, hit Apply in the boolean modifier and get rid of the cube.

The other answer is good, but another way while steering clear of modifiers would be knife tool. k to start, then c to lock it 45 degree angles, then z to cut through the whole mesh (you may wish to use hide h to hide parts not to be cut) then Enter to confirm the cut. Then just delete the top part and fill the resulting loop.
