Find Area Coordinates

I'm using the "Click at Found Image" action, and I just discovered that you can get KM to find the image in a certain area of the screen, which is amazing. My issue is, how do I efficiently select/get the coordinates for the area of the screen I want to put in the fields?

You might find it easier to find within a specific window. Which is - according to the wiki - an option. So, for example, you might know the image is in the top left of the window. That would help KM restrict its search.

The problem is a specific window could physically be anywhere - so restricting the search area relative to the screen could be problematic.

(NOTE: I haven’t tried this.)

The macOS screenshot tool (Cmd+Shift+4) will give you a basic way to measure things.

Also, there is a wonderful tool that's built into KM that performs the coordinate function. It's called Mouse Display. When I first used it, I was sad for the countless times I needed to resize my windows and selections. After finding this out, I didn't even research to see how long it had been there. Since then, when I'm using it, I'm normally shaking my head in disbelief. Try it out.

You haven't really said how you want to define the area, but some combination of:

Should be able to get you to the desired coordinates.
