comment Does most of the formatting remain intact when a standard thesis PDF is converted to Word?
@HarishKumar I can confirm that. I converted my company's Annual Report 2013 this morning using Adobe Pro, and started the editing. It was a mess on all pages with graphs, pictures and tables.

I depends on the conversion path and software utilities you have, how complicated your document is, and if you are going to edit the documents afterwards. The free Nitro PDFtoWord does a good job, but the Word document will be a mess if you start editing it. The expensive Adobe Pro will convert a little better, but it will still be a mess after you start editing.

So this is not possible? Is it any other way to achieve the same?

comment Write a book using Latex!
Since the question is on hold (or closed) it is impossible for me to answer it. As far as I know, the tufte-class is the nearest I am aware of a complete class with a layout similar to your request. If that class is not suitable, you have to start with another class, add packages and code until you have what you are searching for. I suggest starting either with memoiror KOMAscript (ùse scrbook.cls). memoirhas better documentation, but KOMA-script`has some very nice and advance features. You will not be able to make such book without reading the documentation for the packages.

I recommend to start with the tufte-class. Have a look at this page

comment Can cleveref treat sections in other chapters as chapters?
@daleif Maybe I was unclear, but we refer to the same practise, referring to a subsection as a compound numbered section (afsnit 2.3.3/avsnitt 2.3.3/punkt 2.3.3). But strictly speaking, the correct reference is to subsection (underafsnit 2.3.3/underavsnitt 2.3.3/underpunkt 2.3.3). So if you refer to chapter 2.3.4 or section 2.3.4 is mostly a matter of taste. My preference (and recommendation) is to refer to chapter and section, but leave the subsections etc.

comment Why footnote is not displayed in the text?
Search the site for the topic [footnote] and [table]. Use the package threeparttable. See this question.

comment Align equations on equal (=) symbol
@cfr The question seems to be a duplicate, I agree with you. But a duplicate is a duplicate, not off-topic. (Of course it can be both off-topic and a duplicate, but then you have two off-topic questions). But my real concern was the four down votes and the hash (unfriendly) tone in some of the comments.

comment Can cleveref treat sections in other chapters as chapters?
@daleif If your second comment was addressed to me: In Norwegian (as in Danish) in a short and structured text as for example an agreement, it is sometimes correct to refer to both chapter, sections, subsections etc. as ‘punkt’ as in ‘se punkt 2.4.3 foran’.

comment Can cleveref treat sections in other chapters as chapters?
@Adam Yes, it is of course possible, but it will depend on how (and if) you are numbering you chapters, sections, etc. Put the current chapter number in one variable, put the other chapters number in another, and compare. You may have to split the section number. I do not have the skills do write such macro. I have indicted a simple solution in the answer.
