Re: creating latex macro from custom shapes

Thank you for responding.  Due to time constraints, I wan't able to debug 
this issue.  I was however pleasantly suprised at the quality of the *.eps 
files that dia exports.  The *.eps files that some other programs create 
are poor quality diagrams.  Dia's *.eps files were good enough to use with 
latex - even when shrunk.  

Dia does come with a number of useful objects, however they are not useful 
under many circumstances because they cannot be rotated.  This is why I 
created many of my own shapes (such as the OR and XOR gates).  I applaud 
dia's ability to create really useful shapes in this way!
