Yes, but: OODraw doesn't import SVG (but WMF).

The matter is that I only want to copy e.g. one (out of several) triangle.

Quite true, and some constructions may even rely to their relative position 
within the coordinate system and thus hardly movable. Maybe a starting point 
could be to just clone _all_ objects which are there. Another way would be to 
represent all objects in a tree view - and copy entire branches there.

Okay, not too urgent as it is possible to select several points and change 
settings in one go. Another thing with X marks is that they get too small if 
you export to bitmaps unless you scale the window to 1/6 of the screen size 
before exporting. 

Any news for KDE4 BTW? Additional im/export filters for instance?
Kind regards
