Export your drawing to eps file and include it.
IMHO, as TeX user, we should try to use appropriate style file and
should not try to change each and every appearance. As we as a normal
user are not expert in layout and composing principles. Styles file
are written with great care and we should take appearance as it is,
because it is said for TeX and LaTex that writer should concentrate on
subject matter rather its look. LaTeX will take care of look. If one
consider expert in layout design and want to have title, section and
other layout of his choice, then either he should use any word
processor in un-structural manner or write his own style for LaTeX
(but I believe there is no need to do this as there are already a
number of style files to satisfy one's need)
PS: Please ask one question per mail with appropriate subject, to get
better response. Also see archieve of list.
