comment How to avoid a linebreak before a comma?
@KonradRudolph: you're absolutely right that the comma before "und" is not correct, however without the "und" my example did not work and I did not have the time to create a gramatically perfect sentence which was also useful to demonstrate the problem. :-)

comment How to avoid a linebreak before a comma?
@Patrick: I'm using the "normal" pdflatex - so I'm afraid this is not an option (at least for me).

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?
