Is there a way to add a marker in Umap using coordinates?

I can do that easily in Google Maps (My Maps), just by searching the coordinates.

If you want to do it manually, you can: add a marker to the map, toggle edit mode and then open "coordinates" in the right side menu and change the coordinates to your desired value.

I don't know how to do it when importing nodes but would like to find out. Anyone?

Thanks, but are you referring to https://umap.openstreetmap.fr/ca/ ? I don't see how to toggle the edit mode

So you got as far as adding a marker to the map in any position? Then klick on the marker and klick the pencil icon. Now a side menu should open where you find the "coordinates" section.
