I want to draw a point at a specific location (set of coordinates) for a map. I have read other answers and QGIS documentation on how to use the Advance Digitizing tools / panel and figure I understand enough to be able to do this.
However, I cannot enter the coordinates into the X and Y boxes as instructed. The default coordinate display for the advanced digitizing tool panel is different to the coordinates I have (both easting and northings, and decimal coordinates). I believe the advanced digitizing tool panel is by default set to map units (meters). The coordinates appearing in the X and Y boxes as I move the cursor around the screen are 5 and 7 digits long whereas the decimal coordinates for the point location and only 2 and 3 digits long (decimal coordinates begin with 34 and 142, also see screenshot below).
I cannot convert my coordinates to match the default display as I am not certain what unit this is, and I suspect it is something like meters east and north of a specific point.
Coordinate system: Projected GDA94 / MGA zone 54 (this is in Australia) Measurements: GRS 1980 (EPSG: 7019)
