I am looking forward to playing with a few commands like /fill, /setblock etc but I can not see how to show the coordinates showing where I am in the world. Any ideas please?

Lynne, Right now the only way to get coordinates is to use the map and hold it in your hands. There is no F3 command like in the Java. You can do this by: give @p emptymap. Once you use the map it will create a filled map. This is useful for seeing coordinates, which appear in the top left corner. However, you have a big map in your face. This was a challenge for me when I created my Geocaching lesson, which relies competely on coordinates. Another option is to use the ~, which is your exact X, Y, or Z coordinate. Then you can do the fill command with: ~ ~ ~ ~5 ~ ~10, which will fill 5 extra from your X and 10 from your Z, but notice the Y stays the same. Hope this helps, Mark

In addition to using the blank map idea that Mark provided, you can also see coordinates on my Companion App map. This is a nice option because you can quick see coordinates without having to travel to each 'corner'.

There is one other way that is not the most Ideal for many, but for speed and efficiency I find it to be the best. Use the /setworldspawn command and it will automatically output the coordinates in the Chat Window. I find this so much easy to use as I can auto-populate the command very quickly when building. Lynne I know you will agree with me. It's a similar efficiency trick we use in our MineGage building :D

Hi there, I need to use F3 feature in Minecraft Education Edition. The feature is the coordinates facing North, West, Est, South and the coordinates facing Zenit... How can I see those parameter? Thank you...

To use the coordinates in Minecraft: Education Edition, you need to make sure the world you are in has "cheats" enabled. It is located under game settings, cheats, and "show coordinates". Toggle it on, return to your world, and there you go. As for actual compass direction, this is a great suggestion, but these are the current coordinates we have available. Sorry about that!

Hey, I am having trouble with using the border. I try to place it down but it does'nt want to be placed down! Any ideas on how i can fix this? Thx, Marcel

Hi there, One suggestion would be to see if you are in world builder mode. For reference about world builder and operator mode, see our Knowledge Base article here: https://education.minecraft.net/support/knowledge-base/profile-types/

@Marcel De Wet you need to have worldbuilder ability to use border block. You can get it using "/wb" command or "/ability "UserName" worldbuilder true" command.
