Two quick updates to Overleaf v2 based on your feedback

Posted on May 16, 2018 by Overleaf Feed

Following our announcement at the start of May that the public beta of Overleaf v2 is now open for all, we’ve been collating your early feedback and first impressions of the new platform over the past couple of weeks. As expected, this is a mix of feedback on features we’re continuing to develop for v2 (such as the rich text mode), along with some small UI/UX issues you ran into when trying out the new platform. We’ve now released some updates to v2 to address the most common of those small issues, which were concentrated on the look and feel of the code editor within v2 (compared to the existing Overleaf and ShareLaTeX editors), and on the wording around archived/deleted projects on the dashboard.

Ten years of work in Wiadomości Matematyczne

Posted on May 7, 2018 by Content AND Presentation Feed

I mentioned a few times on this very blog that I work for a certain journal, Wiadomości Matematyczne. Last year was my tenth anniversary of my job there, and I gave a talk on the joint Polish TeX Users Group and TUG conference to celebrate that. Well, a few weeks ago my TUG paper based on that talk went public. If you are interested in LaTeX and want to learn something about what it looks like to use it to typeset a journal, it may be a nice read. Enjoy!

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!

xparse: optional arguments (at the end)

Posted on April 21, 2018 by Some TeX Developments Feed

For many years, the LaTeX team have been wondering about a subtle question: how do we deal with spaces before optional arguments. 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, ...
