```David,

existence of Raster which I think I never used. It is precisely what I
need, and  -  NO, I do not find 3.51 sec. too slow...

Concerning my first question, I did not know that CTR+click would write
the coordinates to the clipboard and I could find no reference to that in
the Mathematica Book. But I already tried and it worked.

Best regards
Manuel
