comment Coverting Latex into Word with equations, tables and figures
Could you comment a bit more on the "proofreading requirements"? The point is, if it has to be Word, well you are basically lost. It just doesn't work well. However, if it is more a "Word-like interface" that your proofreaders demand, you should really consider LyX, as described in this answer.

comment “ö ü ä ß” in Latex (Mac, German, TeXShop)
You should probably make explicit, that one must not simply copy&paste your code, but actually enter the second line (or at least the umlauts) in the file. Reason: If you copy&paste from any half-recent browser, the encoding will most probably be UTF8. As an extra complication on OS X, this will in most cases even be UTF8-NFD (decomposed form), which "looks right" on screen and in the editor, but makes pdflatex choke. All the glory details to be find here

Hm... IMHO, combining different encodings or being not aware of the actual encoding sound like asking for a lot of later trouble.

What is the advantage over just using utf8 encoding?

comment What is the closest solution to Microsoft Visio with Latex text?
The classic for this is XFig. Well, one has to get accustomed to it's 80s-unixy GUI style (you need to install an X server to run it...). But it is an extremely mature and still very powerful piece of software.

comment What are the pros and cons of using hard wrapping, and why is it so common with LaTeX?
@clemens: Well, I guess it is all just about habits :-) Your editor should be able to manage different settings for .sty files than for .tex files (not to speak about modlines), shouldn't it? BTW: I don't get the point how the argument could be reversed.

@musicman: One needs to have a certain rep (I guess it was 100) to upload images.

Welcome to TeX.SX! I have edited your post a bit: Inserted the image and removed the opening. Note that the latter does not mean that we like to be rude, it's just our way to keep the Q&A comprehensive. You can have a look at our starter guide to familiarize yourself further with our format.

comment How to change white background of an included PDF to transparent
+1 for taking this up again. Looks promising, but unfortunately does now work with my OpenOffice slides. (fix-qdf: <nam>.pdf.readable.qdf: not a pdf file)
