I am writing a paper simultaneously with my thesis; the paper will be included verbatim in the thesis (or at least, parts of it will).
I am looking for a solution that allows me to update my paper without maintaining a separate version for inclusion in the thesis.
I currently use the
standalone package with the
import package to allow inclusion of independently-compilable documents. This works for almost everything, but not for figures: I include figures with
\includegraphics, and it cannot find figures included in a subdirectory of the paper unless they're also in the same subdirectory of the thesis.
Is there a way around this, besides the obvious but, imo, ugly use of symbolic links?
Following the suggested links, I noted that this question: How to make the main file recognize relative paths used in the imported files? recommends using subimport, in which case my question may become "when should I use
input." But I'm not sure, so I'm still asking the original question, this is just "showing my work".
