I'd like to continue this thread by wishing that I could have my favourite
editor started by IPE when I want to edit latex code.
In my case that would be vim, however, I think that Ipe should have a look in an
environmental variable like IPE_TEXTEDITOR to see if/what external program
should be started. Further, I would like the latex log file to be opened in the
This would result in that I could use my own shorcuts, and have the text
