L Shortcut

Description

I feel sure I've seen this request for enhancement somewhere, but I can't find it in trac. Maybe I was dreaming.

I would like it very much if you can give us a L shortcut as in P1, that gives back the LatLon? position of the mouse pointer.

Even better would be a function that add a node at a given LatLon? position, like in JOSM. There will have to be a protection that prevents adding a node outside the current window though, else people like me will switch the LonLat? and add nodes in Timbaktu, and do it again and again because it did not happen the first time.

I think there is merit for both functions, but if the L shortcut is easier, it does work as a work around for placing a node at a given position. It is very cumbersome to get the exact position, but still better than nothing.

I have added support for this in [25226]. I don't know how P1 did it, so I made a text box that constantly updates with the current location. The box is hidden by default, but when you press L it shows. The way I implemented it is a bit dodgy, so we'll see if the patch gets accepted. :)

In P1 you had to position the pointer, press L to get the coords, reposition the pointer press L again. Your way sounds much better - I also hope it gets accepted, then I can test it ;)
