X - Y Coordinates - Macromedia Fireworks

Is it possible in Fireworks for the status bar or some such place to disply the exact X - Y coordinates that the cursor is pointing whilst using any of the tools? I am trying (using the pen tool) to do some freeform lines that need to be exactly horizontal and this would be greatly helped by being able to see what coordinates I'm pointing at BEFORE I click the mouse Regards Jos...

    Default X - Y Coordinates

    Hi Jos,

    I think the "Info" window (Window > Info or Alt+Shift+F12) displays this. I
    have this, and my Layers window, combined as I find it very useful to see
    the X/Y co-ordinates.

    Press the Shift key while using the Pen to constrain your path segments
    to 0, 45 and 90 degrees angles. No need to eyeball it with x & y
    coordinates.

    I would sugest you read the manual to get familiar with the basic tools
    at least. It will save you a lot of aggravation.
