comment Standalone package, preserve preamble
Thanks that is in a way what I was looking for. But there's no fine grained control, to allow parts of the sub preambles to be included in the main preamble?

comment Standalone package, preserve preamble
yes but when you apply a drop shadow to the box it will also be applied to the plot, with savebox this does not happen.

@Herbert see my question here: tex.stackexchange.com/questions/157191/… a savebox allows me to nest tikzpictures safely

comment Standalone package, preserve preamble
Good idea, but it's not working with a \savebox inside the temp.tex file

comment Standalone package, preserve preamble
as far as I understand is this not possible because nesting of environments is disallowed (and gives a missing \endgroup error)

comment Standalone package, preserve preamble
Thanks! But this approach is not working with savebox. Nesting of environments causes an error.

comment How can I selectively paginate my Master's Thesis?
check out the koma-script documentclasses: ctan.org/tex-archive/macros/latex/contrib/koma-script they do all the stuff mentioned. Use \frontmatter, \mainmatter to change page numbering style.

comment Drop shadow of node with pgfplot inside
no it's alright, I was just searching for such a feature quiet a time. Is there even apossibility to declare a savebox inside the document (in combination with the standalone package).

comment Drop shadow of node with pgfplot inside
sorry for my bad explanation. I have two nodes with a pgfplot inside and I want just to have drop shadow on every node and connect them with an arrow: \draw[->] (node1) -- (node2);

comment Drop shadow of node with pgfplot inside
thanks for your solution! What would be the correct way to connect 2 nodes with pgfplots inside, instead of nesting the pgfplots inside the nodes?
