One way to get coordinates of the points clicked at in a graphics is as follows. 1. Create a graphic. 2. From the Graphics menu select Drawing Tools 3. Use the Line segments tool to select points on the graphic 4. Select the graphic cell and press ctrl-shift-E (Show Expression). 5. Scrol down to the end of expression to find LineBox command. The coordinates in the LineBox are the points that you clicked at. LineBox[{{2.665520888462469, 0.11367539029046214`}, {2.366234332564928, 0.3978773031864553}, {1.9734207279494067`, 0.662811289784415}, { 1.1971462235901613`, 0.5183018425491642}, {1.4216111405133167`, 0.29190370854727143`}, {0.7669217994874471, 0.13294331658849567`}, { 0.3273446705129348, 0.5472037319962144}, {0.7669217994874471, 0.8265886633176991}, {1.720897696410857, 0.8073207370196657}}] -- Asghar Bhatti On 5/10/07, Forex Ample <Forex at ample.com> wrote: > > Ouch.
