Hi All,

I like to use IPE due to its' wonderful LaTeX integration. However there
is one problem.
I often create some schematic diagrams complemented with math formulas
for my students. So I'd like to reuse some typical objects. I've created
a dedicated sheet ("object library") with objects like transistors,
current source, voltage source, capacitor and so on, and I would like to
copy the objects from one IPE window (the library) to the second window
(the currently edited sheet).
However up to now I was not able to find a way to do it :-(.
The only way is to start from my "library sheet" and create diagram by
copying and moving objects INSIDE of the sheet and  finally remove
unused objects. It is not very conenient and makes combininng objects
from different "libraries" impossible.
Is such functionality available in IPE? Maybe I've missed something in
the menus or in the documentation?
TIA & Regards,
Wojtek Zabolotny
