Thanks for the reply. It works. But is there a way to
set the above options in some global place, As in preferences
or some common options file, so that each new ipe file created
from the GUI will have these options in it allready?

This way,one does not have to edit the .ipe file manually
using a text editor each time to add these 2 lines for each
new drawing .ipe file being created?
