    You need to move the mouse to the desired location and then right click to get the little window with "Click Her To Set Location". Then click on the text line and the GPS Data for the location is stored in the respective EXIF field.

    (I hope this answers your question).

    Checking the user guide on page 28, it says to right click to move it, not to click and drag it...

    Thanks Volker Gottwald and Rick Sammartino. I am now able to move the location by right-clicking at another spot on the map. However, I can't seem to get it to be very precise. I click on the text line of the box that appears and the new location appears near the box, but not immediately below the box's pointer. Maybe that's the best I can do. Thank you for the tips.

    I use Google Earth to get exact latitude and longitude coordinates then paste them into Photo RAW's GPS field to get an accurate position for the map pin. You'll have to convert them from the Google format to what Photo RAW expects which I do in the Comments field for the pin in Google Earth. Once they have been formatted properly I copy from there to paste into PR.

    Good idea, Brian Lawson. I'll give that a try as well. Thanks!

    This is what it looks like in GE when I've got the reformatting done. Note that the Latitude field has a leading space character that needs to be removed and you'll have to add one between the actual coordinates and the NSEW marker. Once it looks like the Comments field where I do the reformatting it can be copied and pasted directly into PR's GPS field.
