I have a txt file that looks as follows:

28.4623846099669    -81.5099918874859   -0.48895188341136

The coordinates are located around 9000 Bay Hill Boulevard, Orlando, FL 32819, United States of America.

I want to create a layer from the text file. First, I start a new project. The CRS in this project is EPSG:4326. This is visible in my screen in the low-right part of the screen.

Next, I go to Layer --> Add layer --> Add Delimited Text Layer

However, the layer is not visible.

What am I doing wrong?

A lot of answers here mention that there could be a mismatch between CRS of the project and the dataset but in my case its both EPSG:4326.

    At least the coordinates do not seem to be expressed as DMS. And for QGIS x=longitude and y=latitude.

You have the X (longitude) & Y (latitude) coordinates reversed. And the coordinates are DD (decimal degrees) not DMS (degrees, minutes, seconds)
