Welcome to the quick start guide to Overleaf. We've put together some useful resources and links in the sections below, and if you have any questions about how to get started please let us know and we'll be happy to help!
If you'd like to dive straight into the editor, simply click the button to create a new paper using our quick-start template. A short tutorial will walk you through the main features to quickly get you started.
If you're new to LaTeX, we've put together a free online course to help you learn the basics. If you have never used LaTeX before, or if it has been a while and you would like a refresher, this is the place to start.
A quick way to share your course templates or lecture notes is to publish them in the Overleaf gallery. You can publish any project from Overleaf to the gallery in just a few clicks.
Simply click the button to set up a group on Overleaf for your class. You'll then be able to add students to your group by email address.
Once you've set up your class (see above), this video shows you how to create and distribute assignments to your students.
You can also read a quick guide to the assignment tools on our blog.
Please use our contact form and we'll make sure your question gets to the right person in our team.
We've put together a short How do I use Overleaf help page to give you pointers on exactly that :)
