I need a way to quickly copy coordinates under mouse to paste them to external program (3D reconstruction software I use for making maps from photos).
I see the coordinates within status bar at bottom of the screen; my hack of getting what I want right now is to:
- Place mouse over the place you want coordinates of
- Press Alt-tab to switch to another full-screen application
- Now you can move the mouse without changing coordinates in QGIS; get mouse to the bottom of the screen, outside of map area
- Alt-tab back to QGIS
- Copy the coordinates from the fields at bottom, be very careful not to get the mouse over the map or the coordinates will get updated
So this works, but is a bit annoying. Is there a better way? When I try to google this, I'm getting articles on "Coordinate Capture" Plugin. But it doesn't seem to be present in current versions of QGIS.
