We’ve just launched a new, redesigned and more usable version of ShareLaTeX! The new version is more consistent, more intuitive, and the features you need are easier to find. If you haven’t already, then go give it a try!

As well as giving the ShareLaTeX brand a bit of a reboot, we wanted to focus on the usability of our web app. In this redesign we’ve tried to:

  • Make the editor cleaner and free of distractions so that you can focus on your writing.
  • Make it easier to find all of the features of ShareLaTeX and tune your personal settings to your taste.
  • Make managing a large number of projects easier with a better folder system and bulk actions on multiple projects at once.

I hope that these things will make using ShareLaTeX an even more pleasant experience than it was before.

As always, we’d love to hear your feedback, and have put together a form to collect your thoughts on the redesign. Please help us out and fill it in.

Of course, all of these changes are also part of the open-source edition of ShareLaTeX so you can enjoy them locally too!

Over the past few months we’ve been working with the talented Adam Conrad to give ShareLaTeX a usability and design overhaul. It’s got a lot cleaner and easier to use. Here’s a quick preview of what it looks like:

Now we need your help to test out the new version before we go fully live. If you’d like to get early access to try out the new site, then please fill out our beta testing form.

We’d love your help for either:

  • Start using the new version today, and let us know what you think and if you encounter any problems; or
  • Have a quick one-one Skype/Google Hangout call with us so that we can go through some of the new features with you in person.

If you’re interested then let us know and we’ll get back to you ASAP (and be eternally grateful!)
