In Minecraft: Education Edition, I'm trying to build something for someone; how do I see the coordinates of the block I looking at? I can't turn debug mode on like in Java Edition so is there another way to do it?

  • Can you do /gamerule showcoordinates true? That might work it might not idk, if it does work ill leave it as an answer

  • No like when you turn on debug mode, there is a thing called looking at: x y z @Penguin

Looking at a block and opening the chat, then typing /setblock but don't hit enter! The autocomplete will show you the x, y, and z.

The more efficient option is to run /gamerule showcoordinates true and do some math or stand on the block.

/fill ?

Let's say you wanna easily /fill an area. Stand on one corner, then either remember or write down it's coordinates displayed to you by /gamerule showcoordinates true.

Then go to the other corner, look at the block, and type /fill and press Tab three times. Then just type the earlier set of coords and complete to command.

  • is there a way to replicate Looking at Block: x y z

  • @Coder2195 are you saying you want to add a debug menu? If so, then you can't (to the extent of my knowledge), sorry!

  • @Coder2195 does this solution work for you then? Also may I ask why you need this? Maybe there's a better way

You have to go into settings and toggle coordinates. I’m pretty experienced when it comes to Minecraft Edu, and use coordinates quite a bit.

  • Can you show those settings? If this was a vanilla setting, I assume someone would have pointed that out already, or is it something that was introduced recently?

  • @Joachim He seems to have misunderstood the question, OP wants the coords of the block he is looking at rather than his own position. Also, I don't believe there are mods for Education Edition
