To select the area of a map, use the 'Tools→Select area' menu option, or select the 'select area' mouse mode button on the toolbar (see icon below).
Using the mouse cursor, left-click and drag to select the desired area (see below). Note that the status bar displays the start and end coordinates and the size of the selected area.
To precisely select map coordinates, you may use the select area window, in which you may manually input the map coordinates.
