Hi folks - The other day I sent the following message to both the gimp users and gimp developers lists, hoping to determine whether there is any way to obtain image coordinates from a mouse click in a gimp plug-in. So far I haven't received a single reply. Are there really any of you out there??? :-) Even if you don't know or can't answer my question, it might be nice to receive a few replies anyway so I can at least confirm that my message actually got through ok.
If there is presently no way for a gimp plug-in to obtain mouse click image coordinates (either at point of menu invocation or later), then I would like to submit this as a suggestion to be considered for a future release.
