Overleaf V2 does not seem to have a way to get the BBL file for arxiv, how do I get it?

You can get the bbl file if you click on the "log and other files" icon next to compile, recompile icon just above the pdf viewer. Then you can scroll down, and at the bottom you have a "log and other file" icon/button, you can select it to download the bbl file. enter image description here

    Another method is to click on "Submit" and then choose e.g. "arXiv", there will be an option to download a .zip with the .bbl included. Once you click the button, it should show a "Please wait" message and take a while to build the zip. Then the button comes back, only this time it is a download link that will immediately download the zip archive.

  • @LianTzeLim can you post this as an answer? This is the right way to submit to arXiv Mar 10, 2019 at 20:19
  • I tried @imnothere's method but the generated zip file did not contain the bbl file. I could get it with @Guido's method though.
