There is no definitive answer to this question, as there is no Times
Sans. It depends on what you are after.

The most used choice is a downscaled Helvetica. Although not necessarily
aesthetically pleasing, it will go almost unnoticed (like Times for
serif) because this is what people expect.

 I am using two columns in the book, therefore I am interested exactly
 in that: glyphs thinner with less space between.

OK. 

The next thing to consider is, whether the sans serif should match
or stand out. In the first case, a semi-serif (like Ivona) might be
advisable, in the latter a contrasting shape with maybe even different
grey value like Avant Gard (or the TeX Gyre variant Adventor).

 Yes. The master and its other children should be opened in the

 the outline for the whole document.

 Are all the children actually included in the master? 

 If not, you will not see them, because the master doesn't know about

Re: Why this list refuses small zip / 7z archives ?

I can recommend DropBox (http://www.dropbox.com) for this purpose.  
They offer 2GB of free space and their software (Linux/Mac/Windows)  
seamlessly integrates this storage into your file system: You just  
copy your files to the local Dropbox/Public folder (via command

The TOC will list chapters, sections, subsections and so on.
It will not list the unnumbered chapter*, section*, subsection* and so

entry in the TOC. And of course no number, it does not make sense
to number something that isn't listed in the TOC anyway.)

So make sure you use the numbered variants. If you don't want

Here you can turn unwanted numbering off, and also decide what will be

This is not possible directly from within LyX or pdflatex. However,  
you can easily use an external tool to extract the pages you want from
