Hexpress: Refinement Box definition

defining a refinement box in the domain by clicking two corner points on the
screen is in some occasions not very convenient when you want
to have your box at a specific location.
Are there alternative ways for definition by typing the coordinates
of the two corner points?
Or even better import an stl-file that defines the refinement region?

Dear Tim,
When you have selected to create a new box, you can left-click in the section at the bottom (just below the black bar) that indicates: Enter >>
With the cursor in this line you can then type the x y and z coordinates separated by a blank space and confirmed by pressing Enter. Then you can type the coordinates of the second point in the same way.

Alternatively you could write a tiny macro containing the command:
create_refinement_cube(x1, y1, z1, x2, y2, z2)
but probably through the GUI on the Enter line is easiest.
