• Improved Auto-complete, now with Snippets

    Posted by James on March 5, 2014

    This article was originally published on the ShareLaTeX blog and is reproduced here for archival purposes.

    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.

    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.
