```Hello,

I use ipe (6.0 preview 23) on Linux and Windows for my diploma thesis
and like this program. But I have two question:

1. ipe is a frontend for pdflatex and runs pdflatex in a special
directoy "latexrun" in the user specific directory. It is possible to
definde special latex-packages like "\usepackage{palatino}
\usepackage{mathpazo}" for using special fonts? This lines must only
be inserted in the head of the LaTeX file that is produced by ipe
before the pdflatex run. I can images such special adjustments in the
preferences dialog of ipe. What do you think?

2. Currently, I draw a lot of circles that are connected with lines
(arrows). If I move these circles, the lines lose the connection to
the circle and if I move the arrow and the circle at the same time the
other end of the arrow has lost its circle.
My question is if there is a possibility to connect the end point of a
line (arrow) and an object (cirlce, sqaure) in a kind of grouping. If
you move this group, the end point of the line does also move and the
