You can add attributes contain coordinate in the value. Use fields so the coordinates will be automatically updated.

This is how you can use fields to report your coordinates. I will try to write in details how you can report it using data extraction. It's to long to describe it in here, plus I have to upload some screenshots.


But you can try my file and see the screenshot.


Let me know if you still have problem.

The way to go is to take your block look at scales, x y and angle so can work out the 3 points. Save as invisible attributes. Need some time.
