Do you spend too much time on formatting documents? 

A potential solution is to use LaTeX, a tool to create professional looking documents. 

LaTeX can be used to create conference and journal articles, scientific documents, books, as well as many other forms of publishing and change the appearance with ease within existing templates.  It simplifies the more complicated parts of typesetting, such as inputting mathematical equations, adding footnotes, referencing and creating bibliographies, creating tables of contents, and having a consistent layout across all sections.
