[pstricks] PSTricks Coordinates by Point and Click

Hi Carsten, 

Thanks for your answer. I do exactly the same if I want to draw a Figure from scratch. 

However, now I need to annotate matlab plots, which I exported to pdf/eps via laprint. So its basically a figure which shows up to 20 graphs without any structure. Now I need to put a label on each of the graphs at a position which I need to be able to modify ad-hoc. I cannot do this in Matlab and then psfrag, so I include the pdf in a pstricks dummy file and enable a grid and do it by hand. For these types of workflows, point-and-click would be really nice.  

Thanks for your answers so far,

What I am searching for is a tiny bit of WYSIWYG for my PSTricks-Workflow.

WYSIWYG bears (like in typography in general) the risk of one being attracted by ad-hoc possibilities rather than focusing on an organized information transfer planing. You do not sketch for pretty-printing paper, do you?

Preskeched on some chequered paper you'll hardly need to guess the coordinates. You'll just have to compute/keep the alignment and read out the rest.
