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.

comment Biblatex error can't use file + pdf
thanks for the explanations! Using the biber backend (by adding backend=biber to the biblatex options does not avoid the error warning for me. For the moment I will just ignore the warnings, but I'll try to consolidate my bibtex entries some time...

comment pdflatex - how to find bottleneck of long compiling time for my document
I tried that and in general it works, but I'm not yet sure how to interpret the results... are you sure that the cited time corresponds exactly to the page in [n] or could it be the processing time of page [n+1] or [n-1]?

comment How can I keep browsing my pdf with synctex at the same time as LaTeX is rebuilding it?
@Elmar Zander: sorry, there is still one problem, I did not notice directly: it seems that the pdflatex compiler modifies the main.tex file and the preview version is the "static" one which I could use during compiling. However, if I use synctex to jump from the source code to the PDF, it jumps to main.pdf and not to the static preview version.
