Bug Description

(this is a feature request)

I would much like to have a simple feature to export the coordinates of a single (or multiple) objectsto the clipboard as plain text. For me personally this is handy for developing flex without a graphic editor (Inkscape IS my graphic editor for flex in a way). And maybe other persons can find a use for it also.

If i get all the coordinates as text i can easily use these in my xmxl files. now i have to copy/paste them from the GUI which is cumbersome and sometimes Inkscape doesn't copy them correctly and the clipboard stays empty.

What would be even better is an option to in the export dialog to create a text file of all objects being converted to .png with their coordinates. That would be quite logical if you use inkscape for designing, because every time objects are exported, you might need their exact coordinates to for the next program (i.e. flex) which will be making use of the objects. Although any human readable format would do, a nice XML might be handy since that would make it possible for other programs to import the files automatically en place them in the correct place.

For people searching for the same thing as me: i managed to export all coordinates with a "normal" coordinate system using autoit:
