comment Simple text editor that uses LaTeX layout
You should definitely give LyX a try. It as a pretty decent math editor that combines online visualization with the possibility to either click or enter as commands the maths stuff. It even supports own macros with its online visualization. Note, however, that LyX should not be considered as a LaTeX editor. It features an own file format, but uses LaTeX as back-end.

comment tcolorbox: `height fill` as option to `tcbraster`
+1 for simple and elegant solution! I wasn't aware of the \pagegoal and \pagetotal lengths and wondered, which package one needs for that or if they are pdflatex specials. Apparent to the comments of this answer, however, they are TeX primitives, hence, available with any engine. Nice!

comment install package in subfolder
@einpoklum: That seems like overkill, really. – yes, it does. Until the day you have to rework a ten years old project, work on the same project on three or more different computers using different environments, work with 10+ people on the same project, or just have to pass the thing in a "way that works" to your colleague or boss.

Load one of the available color packages (e.g., \usepackage{xcolor}), which define the \color command.

comment How to check for more elements a foreach loop?
Hm... I have no clue what is actually asked here and how the question fits the answer (or vice versa). Maybe you can rephrase your question with the intended output? Even if your problem is solved now, it would help others with a similar problem.

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

comment “ö ü ä ß” in Latex (Mac, German, TeXShop)
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.

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.
