About Coordinates

The coordinates displays information about current mouse position in menu bar extras or in a flying panel.
The coordinates can be displayed in X : Y or Y : X formats.
The application respects five different origin points in coordinates' calculations. The next picture shows the location of the basic four origin points in red circles. The blue spot shows the custom origin - it can be placed anywhere. Green arrows show the direction of increasing the coordinates.
