comment how can I prepare a word document, so that writer2latex will give me the best result?
nothing fancy. I tried to clean up the document as much as possible in word, using the predefined styles (header 1, header 2, ...)

that's not a solution, because it means that I then need to replace all sections with subsections, all subsections with subsubsections, etc.

250 pages in total. roughly 10 documents. that's why copy & paste isn't the most straightforward solution.

comment Do people use LaTeX or InDesign (or something else) for a technical report / book?
@KeksDose so I tried writer2latex but I end up having to manually go through the entire text and copy & paste it into my actual latex document (because things like \part \chapter are not used by the write2latex document).

@Keks Dose: I assume you are using the Writer2LaTeX exporter for the latex export?

thanks for the hint regarding doc to latex - I wasn't aware of that option. Regarding KOMA-script vs memoir, what are the differences? if I ask google I don't really find an answer.

@JosephWright if added a couple of links to pdf files which hopefully clarify what I'm looking for.

yes, figures and tables need to show up on certain pages. I know that latex is 'smart' of putting them somewhere, but usually this means that all figures end up @ the end of a section / chapter. that's useless.

comment How to prevent two column text to overlay with minipage of entire pagewidth?
I don't want to keep switching back and forth. All of the text is two columns, I really only want one minipage at the beginning of each chapter which spans both columns.
