I linked an Overleaf project to GitHub. Then I changed the name of the repository on GitHub. How does one change or unlink an Overleaf project from GitHub once it's been linked?

  • Fair enough. We have clear answer below, which I hope is helpful to others facing a similar issue. – biochemist May 27 at 15:58

I'm on support staff at Overleaf. It is not possible to change the Github repository a project is linked to after the link is made - sorry for the inconvenience. If you need to do this, you could copy the project on Overleaf and link the copy to a new repo, or start a new project from the new Github repo. In either case, the History of changes on Overleaf would start from scratch.

Hope this is useful. We're available at support@overleaf.com for any questions you have.
