Seems like an excellent place to ask a LaTex question - I’d maybe like to use it for work, for longer papers, but am unsure how it integrates graphics files with the text. There are no good chemical drawing packages for linux, so I need to draw all my structures in a windows or mac environment. How would this work if I attempted to use LaTex, firstly from the perspective of just the mechanics of writing a paper [would I need to convert the structures into a graphics file format, or use Miktex in windows etc].
Second, writing a chemistry paper is very interactive between the schemes showing structures and the text. I constantly switch between editing chemdraw pictures and writing text, and that integration in word feels very important. Would there be an analogous process in Latex?
Thanks for any advice, interesting thread.
