We have two exciting additions to Overleaf v2 to highlight in this update—Rich Text mode and the ability to add linked files (from other projects, or from external sources)—which were released recently in amongst many other improvements behind-the-scenes!

This is the fourth in a series of tips highlighting features available in Overleaf v2. If you'd like to try v2 for yourself, the beta is now open to the public at https://v2.overleaf.com.
Overleaf v2 offers an impressive collection of new and upgraded collaboration features. The collaborative editing is faster and smoother than in Overleaf v1, and it shows you where your collaborators' cursors are as they type. The new track changes mode lets you see exactly what has been changed by your collaborators, and allows you to accept or reject each individual change. You can also comment on ranges of text in your document for precise communication.

Overleaf v2 lets you search your bibliography to quickly and easily insert the correct citation. As well as simple auto-complete of your bibliography keys, you can choose to search your bibliography entries by author name, title, publisher or year. This will save you time from wading through your .bib files looking for the right keys, or trying to remember them.

Following our announcement at the start of May that the public beta of Overleaf v2 is now open for all, we’ve been collating your early feedback and first impressions of the new platform over the past couple of weeks. As expected, this is a mix of feedback on features we’re continuing to develop for v2 (such as the rich text mode), along with some small UI/UX issues you ran into when trying out the new platform.
We’ve now released some updates to v2 to address the most common of those small issues, which were concentrated on the look and feel of the code editor within v2 (compared to the existing Overleaf and ShareLaTeX editors), and on the wording around archived/deleted projects on the dashboard.

Link sharing is an easy way to distribute your project to collaborators. In Overleaf v1, link sharing is on by default. In v2, it's off by default, but you can easily turn it on.
