Is there a tool for shapefiles or a QGIS plugin available, which will enable me to edit the coords of a point manually ?

("tool" -f1 "Tsunami Gauge"-move x1.abcdef -to x2.ghijkl)  

I do have approximate points of which I the later receive highly preceice data and there I would lie to update my so far data, instead of creating new files.

    Numerical Vertex Edit Plugin does not work with QGIS 3.0, I have just found. – CTRO Apr 18 '19 at 12:53

If you want to interactivelly change your points coordinates, one by one, I believe you can do what you want by using the Numerical Vertex Edit Plugin. I can install it in Plugins > Fetch Python Plugins and search it by its name.

After installing you will notice a new icon on you digitalizing toolbar like this enter image description here. To make it active you must be editing a layer.

Click the plugin button, then click on the desired vertex (in your case the point feature). A dialog show the current coordinates of the vertex, and you can edit them.

Doing this to too many points can be quite boring.

    Thanks. I found I had to close and reopen my project in order to un-grey out the tool. But after that, it works as advertised. – Dave X May 23 '14 at 19:52
