About Coordinates

The coordinates display information about the current mouse position in menu bar extras or 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 following 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 indicate the direction of increasing the coordinates.
