Case Study: Genetics Society of America—How Overleaf Streamlines Editorial Processes
By Mary Anne Baynes

In this Case Study we are delighted to share some of the Genetics Society of America’s experiences of using Overleaf and how it has made a very tangible and positive contribution to their publishing operations—and been welcomed by their author community. Today, 70% of all accepted LaTeX submissions coming into the the Genetics Society of America’s GENETICS journal are now written and submitted using the Overleaf template and platform.

The Overleaf team are grateful to the GSA for their assistance during preparation of this Case Study.

How TeX Calculates Glue Settings in an \hbox
By Graham Douglas

This is the third, and concluding, article in a series which takes a look at TeX boxes and glue. The first post Boxes and Glue: A Brief, but Visual, Introduction Using LuaTeX introduced the concepts of boxes and glue and was followed by Pandora’s \hbox: Using LuaTeX to Lift the Lid of TeX Boxes which presented a LuaTeX-based Overleaf project to explore the deeper structures of TeX boxes through the use node graphs. In this final piece we take a “deep dive” into the mechanics of how TeX calculates glue values in an \hbox: a process referred to as setting the glue. We make extensive use of node graphs (introduced in the second article in this series) and show how to use and interpret some of the data they provide: glue_set, glue_sign and glue_order.

Pandora’s \hbox: Using LuaTeX to Lift the Lid of TeX Boxes
By Graham Douglas

Boxes and glue are two key concepts which provide the foundation for TeX’s typesetting model and capabilities. Building on the introductory material in a previous post, Boxes and Glue: A Brief, but Visual, Introduction Using LuaTeX, this extensively-illustrated article examines boxes and glue in more detail. We also present a new LuaTeX-based Overleaf project that enables you to explore the deep inner structure of TeX boxes—providing insights which will help you to truly understand their behaviour.
