comment Do you use TeX for writing your thesis or only for its composition?
I think is truly, unbelievably, terrible advice. Apart from the simply fact that the things you're talking about doing are simply harder and slower to do with physical objects; you're introducing a completely unnecessary step into your process when you inevitably have to type it in at the end. The only circumstance I can see where it might make sense is if you're truly awful at typing in which case, frankly, you should probably invest some time in learning to type better.

comment What are the benefits of writing resumes in TeX/LaTeX?
These are good answers, I would add one more: LaTex is version control friendly. You can store all your changes in, for example, git and track exactly what changed when, branch between versions and so on. You can't do that with complex binary files.

comment Trouble changing font size in figure legends
Thanks, egreg. Could you explain why is yours a better way of doing it? I put the apptocmd in the AtBeginEnvironment to avoid cross-contamination and just duplicated for the table environment.

Well, it seems that setspace messes with the float setup functions so that \@floatboxreset never gets called. By altering your suggestion so that instead of redefining \@floatboxreset it does \apptocmd{\@xfloat}{\small}{}{} I was able to get it to work.

Right, I found the responsible package - setspace stops it working - now I just need to figure out why

Thank you, egreg. However, while that works perfectly in the minimal test environment, it fails to work in my real document. Do you know if any packages would interfere with it?
