Jack,

You've probably already figured it out, but in case you haven't, here it is.
To find coordinates from a text file, the format is "start parenthesis", "x
coordinate", "space", "y coordinate" then "end parenthesis" (i.e. "(1920.0
4630.0)".  Then when you go File -> File Viewer..., choose your text file
with the above format for coordinates then just click on each one.

Good luck,
