Is there a way to make the drill holes as a pocket cut with a single end mill rather than using different sized drills?

Dave,
I am not aware of this being included in the system.
Depending on size, you "might" be able to make your hole (circle) on the milling layer and then mill it out. Remember the milling operation cuts along the centerline of the shape and cannot be offset to either the inside or outside. So you will have to take the radius of the cutter into consideration to try this.

Also, you only get to make one pass with the milling cutter so it would also have to be full depth.
