I've recently migrated to LyX from LaTeX, recognizing some of the tradeoffs. There is one however I can't seem to work with.
I have a multi document LyX project, it's my thesis. I have a main file that only contains child documents. I keep my entire thesis under careful version control, and so it has its own directory structure that I keep consistent to minimize manual edits (e.g. I edit a code that is included as a listing, then when I checkout the new version on a new computer it should automatically compile with the new code wherever I have included it)
However LyX keeps maintaining a static directory structure: the one associated with my laptop (e.g.:
/users/me/temp/temp2/checked_out_thesis/). I however move around a lot and often edit on different machines. This presents frustrating compilation issues, and often I manually have to go through and change the paths on all the figures and listings.
Is there a way to use only one path, independently of what machine I might be on?
