Know the LaTeX command you want to use but can't remember how to write it?
Here we present a great tips sheet produced by Dave Richeson; it's pre-loaded in Overleaf so you can see how the commands work instantly.
Simply click on the button above to open a version in Overleaf for editing (and to quickly copy and paste the commands you need!).
For more comments visit this page on Dave's site, or if you'd like to work through a fuller introduction to LaTeX why not check out our free online course?
Inspired by Zhijian Jiang's "Cheat Sheet For Programming" and the Cheatography cheat sheet format. Personally, I enjoy using this template because it's visually appealing and the listings package makes adding code chunks effortless.
As part of our Community Resources for teachers running courses, workshops and events, here we provide an Overleaf-version of the excellent quick guide to LaTeX, originally by Dave Richeson (reproduced with his kind permission).
This version is perfect for sharing as a PDF, or as a two-sided printed handout. If you'd like to tweak it to suit your workshop, you can open it as a template to make edits to the source. Please note that the Overleaf logos themselves shouldn't be altered, but you can find alternative versions here if you'd prefer. If you make substantial edits to the template, or find other uses for it, please let us know!
We also have a complementary PDF listing the Overleaf keyboard shortcuts, available here.
If you're looking for a fuller guide to LaTeX to share with you students, we have a free online course, a learn LaTeX in 30-minutes quick start guide, and many other in-depth tutorials and examples on our learn wiki.
License note: the text content / source code of the handout is provided under the CC BY 4.0 license, as is Dave Richeson's original version. If you modify the template, guidance on the use of the Overleaf logos is available here.
This is a template for a colourful cheatsheet.
It supports some visualization features and code listings using tcolorbox / minted. Just input the language you want (and that is supported by minted) in the codebox environment
Different colour themes will probably be added at some point.
(maybe also a more print friendly black and white alternative)
A blog post on cheatsheets and some of my thoughts on them and this template can be found here.
