Hi everyone!

Thanks for the great tool!

I'm writing a large document subdivided in several smaller chapters and I like to keep these chapter separated, each in its own directory. To accomplish this, I'm using the "subfiles" package. Furthermore, I edit this document from different computers with different OSs and I use dropbox to keep the data in sync.

One of the drawback of this configuration is that I need to use relative path (I don't have permission to move folders where the path on different system would coincide).

When I try the inline preview, I get an error:

Process started: latex -interaction=nonstopmode -ini "&latex hmr9532 \dump"

Process exited with error(s)

Process started: latex -interaction=nonstopmode "SB9532".tex

Process exited with error(s)

Process started: dvipng.exe -T tight -D 120 "SB9532".dvi

Process exited with error(s)

After a little digging, I found out that the snipped of code needed to generate the inline preview is created in the temp directory (c:\temp) in my case where of course, relative path to the style files are not working (see attachments).

Is there any way to specify the directory to use for inline preview generation? I would have no problem in adding a temp directory to my project and have all this compilation happening in there.

Or, is there any other solution that doesn't require to use absolute path?

Thanks for your time!

Cheers,
El
