You can now quickly jump forwards and backwards between your code and the same place in the output PDF. We’ve introducted two new buttons between the code and PDF panels:

  • To go from your code to the corresponding place in the PDF, click the top button with the right arrow.
  • To go from the PDF to your code, click the bottom button with the left arrow.

Simple! You can also double-click anywhere in the PDF to jump to that place in the code.

Forward and reverse search

Over the past year we’ve had loads of feedback about what people want from our history system, and it’s pretty clear that our existing offering wasn’t doing the job. We’re pleased to be rolling out a complete overhaul today which addresses many of previous problems and hopefully fits in well with your workflow.

New Features

  • See exactly who changed what. Every word that has changed is highlighted with the unique color of the person who made it. Mouse over to find out when the change was made. This should make keeping track of your collaborators much easier.

  • See changes over any time period. Want to see everything that changed since you were last in the project? Since a day ago? Between the first Friday of the month and the last full-moon? No problem, you can select any range you like!

  • Revert any file back to any point in time. You can undo any changes, in any file, so there’s no need to worry about making any mistakes.

Many thanks to everyone who has helped us test and refine this new feature!

We’ve just rolled out an update to our auto-complete feature which should feel a lot more polished. It also now has ‘snippets’ built in, which are short sections of commonly used LaTeX code.

Just start typing a command and the menu will pop up with possible selections.

Auto complete version 2

Fuzzy Matching

The new auto-complete uses fuzzy matching, so you can type shorthand like \fig then TAB to quickly create a figure environment, or \tab for a table.

Thank you

We’d like to say a huge thank you to the team and contributors behind the Ace Editor who wrote most of this functionality in the first place.
