Does QGIS menu have any XY tool like in ArcGIS to add XY data? I have used the other method to capture XY coordinate. Can anyone help?
Use the 'Add Delimeted Text' button (icon is a quotation mark - towards the bottom of the icons for adding layers on the left-hand side of a standard QGIS 2.0 interface). This can take a few text formats and, just like ArcGIS's tool, you can specify the x and y fields. You can also specify the delimiter if it is not a comma for instance.
