As part of our drive to make LaTeX even easier we have built a state of the art LaTeX code checker. When enabled, your LaTeX is constantly checked in real time for a series of common errors including

  • Missing Brackets
  • Unclosed Enviroments
  • Incorrect Nesting

LaTeX Code Checker in ShareLaTeX

More checks are going to be added in the near future. This should help you catch and fix silly little errors without having to go through the compile process.

Sharing is at the core of everything we do here, which is why we are so pleased to have improved the sharing project work flow with our latest update.

Often users have multiple email addresses, or even multiple email addresses which point to the same email, such as vs If you wanted to share a project with a user, you needed to know which address they used on ShareLaTeX.

Last week we released a great improvement to the entire sharing process to fix these issues. When sharing a project an, invite will be sent the to email address you shared it with. If there is an account registered on ShareLaTeX with that email address it will also show an invite at the top of their project list page.

Invite to LaTeX Project

This means that you can accept an invite with whatever account/e-mail you’re currently using in ShareLaTeX - even if a project was shared with your gmail address, you can accept the invite with your university email address account.

The improved share box now also shows if your collaborator has accepted the invite, and if not you have the option of sending another invite to them.

Share Project Modal

We hope you like these improvements as much as we do. They should result it a frictionless process for sharing projects.

There has been a little gap in our PDF complier for a while now, occasionally everyone misses a bracket or is having a hard time working on tikz and they need the ability to cancel a compile.

We are really pleased to say that we have now added a ‘stop compile’ button that will cancel a compile during compilation. You will no longer have to wait for a compile to timeout if the LaTeX is caught in a loop, instead look for the square stop button during compile.

We know lots of you are already really happy with this addition.
