Basically, I need to do the same thing as this answer but with overleaf instead. I tried the following. I opened two windows of the same project. I placed each one of them on a different monitor. In one I let the code go fullscreen, while in the other one I let the pdf preview go full screen. But the pdf preview doesn't get updated even if the code on one screen gets compiled? I have to separately compile the pdf window too.

  • I would ask the Overleaf support – cgnieder Feb 20 at 7:50
  • I have already asked them. They have no idea how to do so. – Tejas Shetty Feb 20 at 7:55
  • well if overleaf staff don't know you are unlikley to get more informed answers here, however having said that if you really want this you could have a single desktop extending over both screens rather than two separate desktops and just arrange that the left half with the code is on one and the right half with the pdf is on the other, that doesn't use anything specific to the overleaf website – David Carlisle Feb 20 at 11:52
  • Maybe you can automatically refresh the second window using a browser extension? For example addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/tab-auto-refresh for Firefox. – Marijn Feb 20 at 12:52

    @TejasShetty If you don't do the automatic reloading too often then I don't think Overleaf will be overloaded (once per minute would be sufficient I guess). – Marijn Feb 20 at 14:35
