Same with Windows. Select the plot by clicking anywhere inside it, and then
press and hold down Ctrl. The cursor changes to cross hair and the
coordinates will appear at the bottom of the window on the left hand side. A
very useful illustration of this appears in the present issue of The
Mathematica Ezine http://omegaconsultinggroup.com/Services/ezv2i02.nb
