Bill, AFTER you click off the points while holding the Ctrl key down, THEN you have to copy the clicked points by using Ctrl-C or the menu command or command on the context menu. AFTER THAT you can paste them into an expression.

I have noted several posts here that indicate how to do this but I cannot get any of the suggestions to work with Mathematica version 4.2 running on MacOS 10.2.4 The reference posted by Paul Abbot indicates one or more clicks while the cmd key is held down are needed to select the point(s) which can then be copied and pasted into an input cell. This reference doesn't specify the key combination needed for the copy/paste operation. Normally, it is cmd-c to copy on a Mac and cmd-v (not cmd-p as suggested by Omega Consulting's ezine) to paste. I see the points selected. But it appears nothing gets copied. At least nothing gets pasted into the input cell unless a previous selection had been copied. In that case, the *previous* selection gets pasted which strongly suggests the ususal cmd-c to copy things on a Mac does not copy the desired coordinates.
