comment Alternatives to LaTeX
@tohecz: I have unfortunately not found the time to try it out myself. Still, I am hoping for an alternative to LaTeX which keeps the good features but replaces the 'programming language' with something more reasonable. LuaTeX is definitely a step in the right direction.

@Manuel, egreg: Taken from the Authors guide for figures of Science: "Use a sans-serif font whenever possible (we prefer Helvetica)."

comment Why does the switch to ClearSans font fails in LuaLateX?
This is great, thank you. It is not so much fashion but more or less a universal style convention in many scientific journals. I have no strong feelings about the issue but when combining different graphs from other sources it is much nicer if they have common typesetting.

@egreg: That almost solves it, now the numbers are sans-serif but in italics.

comment What could cause pdflatex/lualatex to halt compilation and freeze?
In a similar case I called a .bat file instead which contained lots of diagnostics before calling lualatex. If the directory, parameters, environment variables, etc. are all identical lualatex should behave also in the same way as called from the command line.
