so... now that I have to write lab reports at uni level, I'm starting to wonder what software would be best suited for the task. Currently, my workflow goes like this:

- iWork Pages (or MS Word) for the actual report.
- imported LaTeX (or Mathematica) PDFs for mathematical equations
- imported OmniGraffle PDFs for diagrams of apparatus/circuits/whatever
- imported Excel PDFs for data-based tables/regression graphs/etc.
- occasionally, imported Mathematica (or Grapher.app) PDFs for purely mathematical graphs

Obviously, this is ridiculously inefficient. The way I see it, I've got the option to either learn proper Mathematica layout (which I suck at. I don't even know how to hide the input boxes I don't want...) and consolidate all my work to that (except maybe diagrams, I don't think it can do those too well), or find some other solution. Which is why I'm asking you folks.

Thoughts? Ideas? Suggestions?

Thanks in advance,
