Ipe: Import Ipe Figures

📅 2010-Feb-14 ⬩ ✍️ Ashwin Nanjappa ⬩ 📚 Archive

Ipe is the editor of choice to draw figures for Computational Geometry papers and presentations. It is common to create a Ipe figure composed of other Ipe figures (stored in different .ipe files). But, there is no straightforward way to accomplish this import operation.

One way to achieve this is:

  1. Open the source and destination Ipe figures in separate Ipe instances.

  2. In the source Ipe instance, do a Select All to select the complete source Ipe figure. Copy it.

  3. Switch back to the destination Ipe and Paste.
