Publications now viewable by topic

Posted on June 28, 2018 by LaTeX Project Feed

Publications now sorted by topic In the past we collected publications by the project team members on a single web page (with a few extra notes added to introduce the publication). Over time that page got really more and more lengthly and and thus unusable. Since we believe that a lot of the information there is actually quite useful we have restructured this area to provide a view of all publications in cronological order as well as by major topics. Of course, chosing useful topics is hard and we may still have to improve things here and there. For example, we know that we should add further notes in some places. But on the whole, this new view gives much better access to the material available and brings a number of hidden gems (or so we think :-) ) back into focus. So far each publication is sorted only under a single topic. However, in some cases multiple topics might be more approriate—we’ll have to see. Please try it out, the starting points are either Publications by Topic or Publications by Year which is in fact the main Publication page available from the menu. If you have any comments or ...

Running an Overleaf Workshop: The experience of Rodrigo Smazaro during Academic Week at Federal University of Viçosa, Brazil

Posted on June 26, 2018 by Overleaf Feed

Overleaf is the perfect solution for anyone running a LaTeX training workshop—no need for any participant to install LaTeX: just bring a portable device equipped with a modern browser. Because Overleaf is a cloud-based LaTeX platform, it minimises support requirements and significantly reduces the organizers' workload—helping the event get off to a flying start. One of our Advisors, Rodrigo Smazaro, ran a workshop in May at Federal University of Viçosa, Brazil at Academic Week for the Information Systems Undergraduate Course. Here is a link to Rodrigo’s slides (they are in Portuguese). We also asked him a few questions about how it went and what was involved in setting it up.

Polyglossia français debugué

Posted on June 13, 2018 by Geekographie Maïeulesque Feed

J'avais publié il y a quelques temps deux articles des bugs de polyglossia lorsqu'on utilise le français : un bug sur les espaces autours des signes de ponctuations avec les derniers versions de XeTeX ; un bug sur les espaces dans les guillemets. Bien que résolu depuis longtemps sur le dépôt github, ces bugs n'ont été déposé sur le CTAN qu'en avril 2018. La nouvelle version de polyglossia (1.42.5), qui résoud cela, est livrée avec la TeXLive (...) - Bugs et debugs

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.
