In Overleaf, I can choose 3 modes for the editor, one of them being 'vim'. In this mode, the overleaf editor almost behaves like vim. But the Overleaf shortcut to recompile the code (Ctrl + .) doesn't work in vim mode.

  • In overleaf, I can chose 3 modes for the editor, one of them being 'vim'. In this mode, the overleaf editor almost behaves like vim. I don't know anything about 'atom' plugin on overleaf. – Kiran Sagar Jul 5 '17 at 15:08
  • This seems to be a problem with Overleaf. If you are sure the problem is at their end and not yours, you should contact them and report the problem. This might be off-topic here. – moewe Jul 5 '17 at 15:16
  • I agree with moewe. But probably if it shall behave like vim, it is likely that you have vim-like commands to compile. – TeXnician Jul 5 '17 at 15:18

I'm a cofounder at Overleaf. You can trigger a manual preview refresh with :w — that is, how you'd usually save the current file. (We automatically save your file every few seconds, so the usual meaning of :w isn't applicable.)
