    1. Open Baldur.ini in your game's directory and add the following line under [Program Options]:
    Debug Mode=1

    2. In-game, press Ctrl+Space to bring up the console and type the following in your console:
    CLUAConsole:EnableCheatKeys()

    3. Hit Ctrl+X and the game will show the coordinates of the position of your cursor on the information window.

    That's Ctrl+L in BG1.

    Ah, I see. That's what I get for not playing vanilla BG. It's all a bit different for BG:

    1. Open the baldur.ini file, and under [Game Options] add this:
    Cheats=1

    2. In-game, press Ctrl+Tab to bring up the console and type the following in your console:
    CLUAConsole:EnableCheatKeys()

    3. And then you can use Ctrl+L as Tal mentions.

    /edit
    Actually, Ctrl+X should work for BG as well. It appears that Ctrl+L and Ctrl+X do the same thing in BG. And BG2, for that matter.
