4. Enter the latitude coordinates (N/S) of the first point (if the input is in decimal degrees you need to write the "-" sign in front of the number; but if the input is in degrees, minutes and seconds, after typing N or S you should leave a blank space before typing the value, in case that it has two digits). Use the TAB key to input longitude (E/W).

5. Press the Enter key or click on + to add the point to the list.

Repeat steps 4 and 5 to input all the points that define a object (in case it is a line or a polygon). If the object is a line you need to enter the two points that define the line, and at least three points for a polygon.

6. Click on Add to create the object on the selected layer.
