# Does \listfiles work on Overleaf?

I don't have my notebook available for some days, hence I was trying to answer to a TeX.SE question using Overleaf.

I've realized, unfortunately, that Overleaf hasn't the most recent release of the packages (for example, biblatex).

I would like to see the versions used, adding \listfiles at the top of my code but it doesn't work.

\listfiles
\documentclass{article}
\usepackage[utf8]{inputenc}
\usepackage[british]{babel}
\begin{document}
\just to create an error and get the log on Overleaf
\end{document}

• You don't need an error in order for \listfiles doing its work. – egreg Dec 3 '16 at 8:43
• @egreg I need an error to see the log on Overleaf (at least I don't know how to get it in another way :) ) – CarLaTeX Dec 3 '16 at 8:46
• A warning would also let you "open the log", so \ref{foo} ;-) – LianTze Lim Dec 3 '16 at 8:54
• @LianTzeLim Yes, of course, what I mean is that you don't get the log on Overleaf if your code ends OK. – CarLaTeX Dec 3 '16 at 8:56
• (Overleaf co-founder here.) Thanks for the feedback! Agree that better log handling would be helpful. It's on our TODO list. – jdleesmiller Dec 4 '16 at 13:26

This is quite a pain, but if you download a ZIP-file of the project, then you can choose Input and Output files. The .log file will be included in the ZIP when using that option.
