```Correction at (* *) - copy instead of save.

cpd=ClipboardNotebook[];

Plot[Sin[x],{x,0,2Pi}];

- click on the cell holding the picture
-with Control key held down click on some points on the curve
- copy to clipboard (Control, C)     (* *)
- get the coordinates of the clicked points

coords=NotebookGet[cpd][[1,1,1]]
