comment Endnote style within latex
The Bibtex key doesn't need to be author year - it just needs to be a unique label. Author year became a convention because it's human readable too.

comment Subfig causing a mess in List of Tables/Figures
@ChristianHupfer And what is wrong with that if you have pointed out/provided the correct solution? - I tried updating the file name database, refreshing formats... - Looked at which package caused the issue (and thankfully found it) - but never thought to check the updates (again - did so a couple of days ago).

comment Subfig causing a mess in List of Tables/Figures
@ChristianHupfer Indeed - and I updated not too long ago... Well, thankfully a simple solution. Any chance you can post this as an answer I can accept?

comment Speed up compilation of a document with a table created with siunitx
Just nitpicking, but instead of {1\,si{\percent}} it should be \SI{1}{\percent} - the second command exists specifically to typeset numbers with units "properly". - Edit and to me it look identical to 1\,\% without the siunitx package... (Maybe not the case if you use a different typeset)

comment Why is LaTeX so complicated?
@ChrisWhite The ideas behind TeX and C are very different. C was designed as a versatile programming language - TeX was designed as a typesetting environment. The former is by default designed for adaptation and expansion.

comment Why is LaTeX so complicated?
Are you really just using LaTeX or aren't you rather developing for LaTeX? I use LaTeX for everything - I don't need to write macros and don't see any issues (other than the odd tedious hidden setup/manual reading). Aren't you really asking "why is LaTeX so hard to develop for/with"?

comment What is the difference between LyX and LaTeX?
@JimOldfield The last question is easy to answer: Your audience will not have LaTeX experience. The final document is for a general (or topic specialist) audience. If you were to collaborate on a document, you'd share the LaTeX input file. Or to use a photo example: The final recipient gets a compressed JPEG, but if you collaborate or would like to see someone edit your photo, you share the RAW/DNG/TIFF file instead.

comment What is the difference between LyX and LaTeX?
LaTeX and Maths: It takes some thinking and getting used to, but writing maths in LaTeX is fairly easy when one knows what to write... - And I have typeset a fair bit of maths in it. At least it isn't any more difficult than a WYSIWYG editor. (In fact, I consider the latter annoying because you can easily forget leaving a sub- or superscript...)

comment Can I define more than one label inside an equation environment?
If you want sequential numbering, I don't see multiple labels being of use, but I suspect there might be something along the lines of align that could work - the Wikibook is great: en.wikibooks.org/wiki/LaTeX/Advanced_Mathematics
