That is correct, but in pre-6.0 versions, you were only saving points 
that corresponded to the mouse. Those may or may not be the points on 
the curve, depending on how well you could trace over the curve with the 
mouse. I was only trying provide an immediate visual feedback of actual 
values on the curve. The raw values on the curve are available within 
the graphics object if I should need to process those further.
