I recommend to have a look on Cassiopeia. Organizing documents (managing complexity) is one of the objectives of this app. The book feature of Cassiopeia might be exactly what you are looking for. It allows you to arrange and manage (smaller) documents in a higher structure. You can create chapters and then assign documents to these chapters. You can rearrange the documents and chapters via drag and drop,...

Cassiopeia does not require you to know LaTeX. It is a WYSIWYG word processor and generates LaTeX automatically for you. However, it has a LaTeX region feature that lets you insert LaTeX code directly into the document. The equation editor is currently keystroke-based (the most efficient approach). However, it will understand LaTeX sequences in the next version as well. So you will be able to either type \omega to get the greek character or alternatively press Ctrl-g w (<--more efficient IMHO).

Hope this helps!

Andreas
