LaTex or MS Word for dissertation?Watch
Soon I will be starting my dissertation, so I was wondering which word processor I should use?
I don't know anyone who did their dissertation on anything other than Word. It would be the obvious choice. But then again I'm not aware of the functionality of Latex.
I found this https://www.sharelatex.com/ which is so easy to use because of the pre-made templates.
I personally used Latex for almost all reports I have written since my second year (including my 3rd and 4th year dissertations) and I have not regretted using it one bit, it allowed me to draw a lot of nice custom diagrams like circuits, custom plots e.t.c and it also made my equations look very nice.
You can look at examples of custom diagrams you can draw in Latex using the tikz package HERE
