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}}]
