Im desperately trying to find the LaTeXTools.sublime-settings file that I'm supposed to edit in order to use latextools. I'm looking in this file:

/Users/MyName/Library/Application Support/Sublime Text 2/Packages/LateXTools

and its not there. Any ideas?

    You have to create the file. Try the menu: Preferences --> Package Settings --> LaTeXTools --> Settings User – DG' Jun 28 '14 at 20:55

(This answer is to expand the comment from the user DG')

In a fresh install of ST3, the command ~$ find -iname "*latextools*" outputs:

.config/sublime-text-3/Packages/LaTeXTools/LaTeXTools Preferences.sublime-settings.OLD

As you can see, the file LaTexTools.sublime-settings is already there. BUT, this is not the one you should edit

The first lines of that files explains what to do:

DO NOT EDIT THIS FILE!!! Open the Command Palette and run the "Reconfigure and migrate settings" command. Alternatively, select the "Reconfigure LaTeXTools and migrate settings" item from the Preferences, Package Settings, LaTeXTools menu, or open the ST console and type

This is more or less what the user DG' sugested in his/her comment.

After following those instructions you will have the correct file to edit in:

  • find just gives me "illegal option -i" so we're not off to a good start. – djechlin May 22 '16 at 23:44
  • That command is intended for Linux OS. Which one are you using? – CarlosRos May 23 '16 at 8:31
  • OS X (seems to be OP's as well) – djechlin May 23 '16 at 15:23
  • I have no Mac to test, but seems that the find command is available as well. Try it without the "i": find . -name "*latextools*" – CarlosRos May 23 '16 at 17:38
  • Did you mean find . -iname instead of find -iname? – djechlin May 23 '16 at 18:11
