Problems with new Objects

I have the problem that I want to add a new object, but I can’t see it. Blender says that it s there, but I can’t see it. I supppse that the reason for this is that the new added object is far away. So my question is: It is possible to say Blender where to create the new objects?
Hoping for an answer.

Blender adds new objects in the 3D Cursor’s location. Press the N key to show the Properties dialogue and in there search the tab View, that’s where the X, Y and Z values of the cursor are.

Thanks so much, this was going to drive me mad!

If you lose the curser just use Shift+C to re-centre it at 0,0,0
