  IMPORTANT: If you don't think WilliamSeligman knows who you are (especially if you're not using a nevis.columbia.edu email address), please include a short description of how you're connected to research at Nevis. For example, "I work with Prof. Jane Smith on experiment E910 at SLAC."

Working with ShareLaTeX

 Unless you were invited to work on a shared project, your next step will probably be to create a new project and upload an existing LaTeX project to ShareLaTeX. The upload icon is near the upper left-hand corner of the web page. You'll want to upload the .tex file along with any supporting files; e.g., figures, BibTeX files, .cls and other style files. Note that you can select or drag more than one file using the Upload dialog box. After your project is uploaded, click on the Menu icon in the upper left corner of the web page and select your main .tex file from the pop-up menu. Click anywhere else on the web page to exit the menu, then click on the Recompile button in the right-most panel of the web page.

To collaborate with others, click on the Share button near the upper-right corner of the web page. Type in the email addresses of your collaborators. They'll receive an email inviting them to join in the project. Note that they must have accepted WilliamSeligman's ShareLaTeX invitation before you can share a project with them.

In general, the work flow is: Make a change in a text file (e.g., .tex, .bib) by selecting it in the left-most panel, then edit it in the middle panel. When you've made your changes and you want to see the result, click on the Recompile button at the top of the right-most panel.
 When the project is complete and you're ready (for example) to submit it for publication, use the Menu and click on the Source icon in the Download section.

There's help available if you can't figure things out on your own. Note that this documentation is for the commercial Overleaf product; the open-source ShareLaTeX might not have all these features.
