Hi, I’m a Ph D student (first 6 months) and I’ve been working pretty well with my supervisor and my team group.. up to now. I’m writing a publication and serious difficulties have started to come out because of incompatibility. I use Latex (TexShop) to write publications and they use Word and EndNote. I can not use them because Latex is far a way better for this purpose than the aforementioned, and it’s free, the others are not. Also, I’m a mac user, they are PC, therefore I use freeware software for plotting, they use Originlab. I tried to convinced them to try what I use, but it was useless. I was happy with the “think differently” slogan but now I’m worry because paper production efficiency has been slowed down because of this issue. Yesterday I almost cried because I realized that my team and the publications are more important for me than the tools I use, so I'd better speak my team language. But yet I love latex and macs (I hate Word and PCs). What do you suggest I do? Thanks a lot.
