comment What is the 2014 status on converting Word and MathType to LaTeX
What is wrong with just using the mouse and copy/paste text paragraphs one by one from word document to the text editor used for Latex? For the equations, I understand there is a tool allready. For the graphics, one uses \includgraphics and just point it to the image. Lets assume it takes 5-10 minutes to do one page by hand using this method. This means it will take about say one day to convert 50 pages? So lets say one week to convert the whole book? Lets double this as factor of safety. So this is 2 weeks work using the manual copy/paste method.

comment Can anyone draw a chiasma in LaTeX?
Is it possible to have one line fly over the other the lines when crossing, like with the answer below using Metapost by Thruston ? I thought the fly over looked nice.

@UlrikeFischer well, what can I say. You are then just smarter than me :) as I did not think of clicking on the color.

comment how to disable automatic highlighting of texStudio for matched Latex tokens?
@UlrikeFischer thanks! I had no idea one has to also "right" click on the colors to also turn that off. I assumed that what the checkbox was for, which I did turn off. Please make this an answer to close this. I did not know about the sourceforge site of texstudio. Thanks again. I have now decided to delay my switch to emacs.
