Get Graphics Coordinates...

▪ Get Graphics Coordinates finds coordinates in graphics.
▪ When you choose this command, a help message is displayed that explains how to find graphics coordinates: It is not actually necessary to use this dialog once you know how to use the feature.
▪ To get coordinates in a 2D plot, select the plot, hold down the Command key, and move the mouse over the area of the plot. The coordinate values of the mouse position will be displayed in the window's status area. If you click one or more times while holding down the Command key, the coordinates will be selected. You can then copy and paste the coordinate values into an input cell.
