comment Conflict between areaset and sidewaystable with tabularx
thank you so much! Setting the width of the tabular manually to 655 pt solves the problem. I just did not understand where this "magic" number comes from?

comment Auctex command on region - backward search leads to region.tex instead of main.tex
thanks, no I'm not using the development version, but 11.87. So you mean, this just should not work in v 11.87? You're right, I did not compile it myself in this case, but you would not imagine what I've already done or configured and then forgot about having it done... :-)

comment Does LaTeX really perform worse than Word?
thanks for sharing! To give an answer, I'll first have to read the article... My personal experience (I'd consider myself an experienced user in MS Office as well as in LaTeX): if you want to make custom formatting, MS Word is much more intuitive especially for a beginner, in LaTeX you can loose a lot of time there. I've lost a lot of time and nerves with malfunctions of early versions of MS Word, but LaTeX can also create a lot of headaches (and did that for me) if you try to customize it, and are no expert.. If you need consistent formatting/layout, LaTeX might be more powerful.
