• New build options available on writeLaTeX - compile with LuaLaTeX or LaTeX + dvipdf

    Posted by John on May 30, 2014

    To broaden our support for new packages and advances in TeX engines, we've now added two new build options to writeLaTeX - on top of the pdfLaTeX and XeLaTeX options you can also now choose LuaLaTeX or simply plain LaTeX + dvipdf.

    In most cases we will automatically detect the right option to use, but if you'd like to specify it manually you can; simply go to the settings menu in the editor (by clicking the gear icon in the top right), and choose your preferred compilation engine in the 'advanced build options' section.
