comment How to avoid a linebreak before a comma?
@NieldeBeaudrap: you're absolutely right. I just put it this way, as IMHO a comma should be never typeset at the beginning of a line, at least I could not imagine a case that makes sense at the moment.

comment How to avoid a linebreak before a comma?
thanks - as you're writing, this is a one-time-workaround. However as I consider this (=comma at beginning of line) a total no-go, it should be just "forbidden" globally, IMHO.

comment Complex objects delay compiling time - how to make latex faster for draft versions?
Thank you, Olivier! I don't like the draft option because then I don't see my graphics any more. (I'm having mostly vector images, embedded as PDF, so I think they are not as "problematic" as included bitmap graphics).

comment How to globally adjust horizontal spacing in table? @{length}
yes, it works with my example. In my main document, there seems to be a problem. I'll see if I can find out what's wrong.

I tried your new column type, but I get an error message "illegal parameter number in definition of" table. Might there be a typo in the newcolumntype, or a I doing something wrong?

comment How to globally adjust horizontal spacing in table? @{length}
thank you, this is also an interesting approach. However tabcolsep is what was searching for, as it affects all columns. I'm sorry, maybe my MWE was misleading, as I used it to try several different settings to compare, but I definitely want the same horizontal spacing for all columns.

comment How to typeset tabularx with 34 columns? (Error message)
thank you very much - that helps me. However I don't understand why tabularx is not able to do the same thing for more than 20 columns. Is that an internal limitation of the package?

comment How to typeset tabularx with 34 columns? (Error message)
I firstly had everything described in the text, but it got far too long so I tried to create a matrix describing the relations between input and output displaying the literature review more clearly. The problem is: too many factors, output variables and sources... so I fear there is no "beautiful" solution for it. And as the numeric citations go up to "330", the space required is quite high if there are >1 citations per cell. So I'll definitely need footnotesize. I'm having 5 such tables (the other 4 are not as large as this one and should fit on ISO A4 landscape with a little effort.)

comment How to typeset tabularx with 34 columns? (Error message)
thanks for your comments. For the moment, it IS absolutely crucial to display everything to give me an idea, how much space it would consume and to maybe find good ways to split it. It is not a table filled with numbers, but a matrix where by far not all cells will be filled. It shows the relations between process parameters (rows) and product properties (columns), where each cell contains the citations of the sources which observed and effect of parameter X on output Y. As soon as I'll have the overview, I can see how to optimize (=reduce/split/simplify) it.

comment Biblatex: cite command to create numeric citation without parentheses?
I tried the new MWE, but it does not work either. So it seems to be because of my old version of biblatex?! I'll try to update and try again later.

comment Biblatex: cite command to create numeric citation without parentheses?
My package manager TeX Live Utiliy (MacOS X) refuses to update any packages as I still have TeXLive 2010 on my machine. It seems that I'll have to install TeXLive 2011, which I will do asap. Thanks for the change of your MWE.

comment Biblatex: cite command to create numeric citation without parentheses?
Thank you for the minimal example! (It works for me, but:) I'm using the style numeric-comp and then I get the above error message. Would that also work with your installation? (I still have biblatex 1.4, must see how I can upgrade to 1.6, if that should be the reason for my problem)
