Coordinate Capture plugin geographic coordinate issue

Description

I've observed a couple of issues with the Coordinate Capture plugin:
1) The geographic decimal degree readout needs to be more precise - at least 7 places
2)My project CRS is Camacupa / UTM zone 33S. When I invoke the plugin the geographic CRS is set to WGS84, and the datum shift that is associated with the project CRS is used to convert from projected coordinates. I proved this using an external geodetic calculator. I have to manually set the plugin geographic CRS to Camacupa to obtain an unambiguous result.

Hi,

1) would be a feature request (arguably) for me

regarding 2) I'm not sure if I understand the issue: something changed comparing to qgis 2.18?

Issue 1 is now #20009

Issue 2 is related to #13997, which I submitted in 2016. The behavior that I was writing about in #13997 is still there in 3.2.2 Bonn, and in the Coordinate Capture plugin.
