Mike,

I would like to be able to pan around an image, or an elevation model, or a vector layer, zoom in to a noteworthy area or a potential problem, and quickly retrieve the coordinates for pasting into another application (which might be nothing more than a text editor where I'm making a TODO list).

Could a simple function to copy geographic coordinates to the Windows clipboard possibly be added to the right-click menu for (say) the pan/grabber tool, the feature information tool, and/or the digitizer tool?

I would suggest a very simple format such as "1234567, 7654321" or "-170, 45" (for projected and unprojected coordinates respectively), without quotes.

[Coordinates should I think be in the coordinate system of the current view, not source coordinates.]
