    Hi,

    You can use Import/Export - Shapes module and Export Shapes to XYZ function to create from a shapefile an text file containing the x and y coordinates, plus z and other attributes.

    Cheers,

    Hi,
    there is a module for adding coordinates to shapes. Just go to Modules/Shapes/Points/Add coordinates to points - it should add columns with coordinates to your shapefile and you can get is as table when you open the DBF file (if you have a shapefile layer it consists of more files including a DBF table) in some spreadsheet like LibreOffice Calc or MS Excel. :-)
