Try out Overleaf v2

Posted on May 2, 2018 by Overleaf Feed

Since Overleaf joined forces with ShareLaTeX last year, our goal has been to create an online editor that outshines both ShareLaTeX and Overleaf. One that is simple to get started with for beginners, has powerful collaboration features for teams, and that seamlessly integrates with the other tools and publishers you work with. We’ve come a long way since we started last July, and there’s still a lot of work to do, but we’re excited to announce that as of this month you can try out the new Overleaf v2 editor!

It’s easy enough if we know there are more mandatory arguments to look for: \foo{first} [optional] {second} should be treated in the same way as \foo{first}[optional]{second} However, when the optional argument comes last, ...

LaTeX2e: UTF-8 as standard

Posted on March 25, 2018 by Some TeX Developments Feed

Stability is a key idea when making changes to the LaTeX2e kernel: users need to know that they’ll always get the same output for the same (valid) input. At the same time, the world moves on and we need to respond to real-world use. To date, the LaTeX kernel has stuck to purely ‘classical’ 7-bit ... Read moreLaTeX2e: UTF-8 as standard
