comment How do I create point features with exact coordinates?
Another way of doing it would be to first enter the measured coordinates in a spreadsheet, save it as .csv and import it to a separate layer and then snap-add new points in the live layer to the temorary one just imported from the csv-table. It works, but again, in my humble opinion, it is a lot of work just to add some points where I want them. The reason I am interested in solving this issue is because I am curious to see if I can introduce QGIS at my workplace. I use n and e as in northing and easting to avoid confusion when different programs defines x and y differently. Thanks again!

comment How do I create point features with exact coordinates?
Thank you for your answers. But if I use csv-import it will end up in a new separate layer. I created some test points just so earlier this morning. Then I have to merge that layer to my existing layer and it feels like an unnatural workaround when it most often isn't more than a handful of points to add. I will look at the Numerical Vertex Edit and see if it is what I am looking for. I still think an option to manually define coordinates when creating new points would be of great added value to QGIS.
