comment Ideas for a LaTeX editor to make it easier
I think this is off topic, but a noble goal. Having said that, if you're asking here, you're likely to get a lot of advice which is at odds with what a newbie would want --- not just because many of us are experts, but because at least half of us grew up with significant exposure to command line interfaces (think MSDOS and Unix terminals, and the religious wars between Emacs and Vi about which esoteric keystroke-centric editor was superior). I can tell you what sort of WYSIWYG editor I would consider using, and I think some of my ideas are cool: but am I your target user?

The original had the dollar signs in it before my edit, this is not really Ignasi's fault.

N.B. You should not use math-mode for italics. I've revised your code for this, and also to remove the scroll-bars, but without changing much else.

comment a commutative diagram compatible with group actions
Is there any particular style that you would like for your arrows (e.g. their orientation, their location relative to A, B, C, etc.)?

[slaps head] Well, that should have been obvious! @LuisFelipe: I recommend you accept this answer instead.

Would you recommend any techniques for answering the OP's follow up question (in a comment on my answer: "what would be the best way then to have a number on the first line as well")?

This looks as though it would be handy in simple use-cases in documents where you want to have good numbering either on the left or on the right (e.g. in conjunction with leqno).

comment Equation number in aligned environment after last line
To clarify what I meant, I mean e.g. &\phantom{{}={}} -3 + 4 \nonumber\\ . This will still shift the material on the RHS to the right of the equality symbol, and furthermore will do it by exactly the right amount, by construction.

Wouldn't \phantom{{}={}} be better to get the exact spacing?

comment Aligning equations with two equal signs
It doesn't compile on the site: users compile it locally and upload images of the compiled result. So you should check that your code compiles on your computer. (I would recommend that if you're posting something that looks like a complete document, that it include the \begin{document} ... \end{document} as well!)

comment Equation number in aligned environment after last line
@LuisFelipe: I don't have as clever a trick for that. My solution would be \begin{align} x ={}& 22 + 2 \\={}& 5+3 \notag\\& -3+4 \notag\\& +15-0 \end{align} (note the use of \notag before each line break which is not meant to generate an equation number).

comment Equation number in aligned environment after last line
Actually, the way the OP is trying to use aligned can only put the equation number on the same line as the equals sign. At least one of them will be misplaced. See below for a solution.

comment Aligning equations with two equal signs
Is there a reason you specifically recommend a different alignment than that asked for by the OP? This doesn't look too bad, but it is basically just left-aligning everything after Eqn.(1), and arbitrarily doing so at the equality symbol of Eqn.(1).

You should probably revise your answer so that it compiles. But what about the alignment asked for by the OP?

comment LaTeX vs Word; improvements of LaTeX over the years
Is it easy, in Word, to write equations? How about inline math? Is it easy to write a document template? Do you still have to struggle against the software when trying to create a bulleted or numbered list? Word may indeed have shown substantial improvement, but this is not the same as it being worthwhile to use. If the best thing to be said about Word documents is that you don't have to use Word to edit them... why wouldn't one use LaTeX instead?

N.B. On the actual TeX Stackexchange site, rendering of (La)TeX is disabled, which is why your test in the comment above didn't work.

That's as maybe, but you should not use eqnarray.

comment Spacing after equals sign in align
Wouldn't \begin{align} 2 \cosh t &= e^t \\ &\phantom{{}={}} + e^{-t} \end{align} be better? Then the plus symbol would be inset by the width of the equals sign, with the correct spacing.

comment Laptop recommendation for LaTeX
If you are making documents with lots of TiKZ diagrams, or hundreds of pages, and you frequently recompile your document, performance is an issue. Otherwise, you do not need any very powerful laptop. Buy a laptop based on the screen size, keyboard, and Linux compatibility.
