Overleaf Webinar write up from 09/7/2020

I attended another Webinar presented by Overleaf, the cloud based, collaborative text editor.

This webinar focused on “Organizing and Managing your Overleaf Projects”.

Again really well presented and it covered project ownership, and the rights this gives you, e.g you can't rename a project that has been shared with you.

Also covered folders and tags, the differences between project archiving and deletion. Along with more about what is found on the dashboard, searching for projects for example. Well worth taking a look at in the previous webinar recordings.

In the meantime there is a TUG virtual conference near the end of July (24th –> 26th). Please see link below for details.

Next webinar

The next Webinar is on 30th July and will cover How to Create Professional Looking Documents In-House.

Writefull

Writefull is a plug-in for Google Chrome designed to complement the cloud based Overleaf LaTeX editor by facilitating the checking of your document for errors such as grammar and spelling.

You can read more about this here

This is a really valuable tool if you are involved in writing academic texts, as it designed for that level of text processing in mind. However it is a welcome tool if you're using Overleaf in general.

Collaboration with Overleaf

I attended the Overleaf Effective Collaboration webinar on Wednesday 20th May. This proved, once again to be very informative, useful and complements the other webinars nicely.

This webinar, specifically covered the features available to the different users of the system, the main difference with the free accounts includes the number of user who can collaborate and version history tracking.

I recently came across an excellent Overleaf curated article / report from 2017 on The Connected Culture of Collaboration Report

The document (pdf) can be downloaded free from the website and there is a citation guide too, if this is needed for your own articles or papers.

The webinar will be available on demand in due course.

More Trinket Coding

Trinket is a web based development platform. One of it's features is the programming language blocks, which is in fact a block based front end and creates Python programs.

I am sharing these on my blog today, even though I also shared earlier in the week on LinkedIn and also on Twitteras part of the Paignton Library Virtual Code Club.

I am working on a book to update my previous Nested loops guide I wrote a few years ago. This needed updating anyway so it would cover Scratch 3.0. This book / guide is work in progress, and will be typeset in $\LaTeX$ using Overleaf

JabRef Update

Not quite following on from my previous post The JabRef bibliography software has been updated.

JabRef is a bibliography manager, to help make .bib files easier to create and manage. It should be possible to upload the output .bib file to Overleaf too.
