How do I directly set layer positions in Gimp?


Question

I'd like to directly set (i.e. type in actual coordinates of) the position of my layer in the image, like you can with the selection box:

Directly set selection box position

(Not the size, but that would also be cool)

Is this possible? Thanks

Accepted Answer

I was looking for an answer to this, which is why I came upon this question. The closest solution I could find is this:

Click on the top ruler and drag down a guide to the Y coordinate you want.

Click on the left ruler and drag right a guide to the X coordinate you want.

Use the move tool to drag the layer to the approximate position you want it. It will snap to the rulers.
