Overleaf is perhaps the best professional thing that's happened to me. I use your website for every single set of (skeletal) notes, exams, and quizzes for all my classes. I also type all my research papers up in Overleaf. I love the instant compilation and split-screen view. I also love the tag system, so I don't have to sort files by folders. Lastly, I like the different templates offered, which I use for letters of recommendation. In short, if I TeX it, then I use Overleaf.
Eventually, when I teach an upper-level class that requires LaTeX, I will teach them using Overleaf. In fact, my colleague has already done so, after the school computers were reformatted and the pathways between MiKTeX and TeXnicCenter got messed up. She begrudgingly tried Overleaf, which she had never used, and her students loved it.
The whole site works seamlessly. I can't thank you enough for introducing this intuitive, wonderful, and free service...I love your website and will be using Overleaf for the near future.

After receiving such a kind email – it means a lot to everyone at Overleaf, and to me personally when we receive messages like this – we asked Alex some follow up questions as part of our Author Interview blog series. This is what he had to say...

How often do we find the illustrations we need for our presentations or posters? It gets even worse when we need an illustration for a paper, right?

Paty first got in touch to ask us if she could have an Overleaf duck, and seeing as she was so enthusiastic about Overleaf we decided to ask her more about her work and her use of the platform! Oh, and we sent her some ducks too, of course :)

“Many bioinformaticians and biologists who use computational models have told us that they generally prefer using the LaTeX format over [Microsoft] Word. By working with Overleaf, we can offer this group of authors an alternative to Word, and this helps improve their overall experience with F1000Research.” – Michaela Torkar, Editorial Director at F1000Research
