How to shift a set of points and get new coordinates?

by guest556   Last Updated August 14, 2019 01:22 AM - source

I have a transect that I've added as a delimited text layer that has UTM X and Y coordinates for about 300 points all within a river meander. red points in a line that run on land instead of lining up with river channel They currently do not line up with the channel shown in the raster, so I would like to use the selection tool to highlight and shift them, just like the first ~1 min of this video for QGIS 2.8.2.

When I select this layer, I am not able to toggle editing. I cannot seem to find the reason why. Once I do move these points, will I be able to export the new coordinates? Is there a better way to do this, considering I have about 20 transects to shift from 0.4-3m?
Example of coordinates:

UTM X: 4310006.696, UTM Y: 330900.7821

(hi I'm very new, apologies if this should be obvious)

edit: I'm using QGIS 3.6.
