How do you choose which .sty file a document uses in TeXworks?


I understand the problem; I misunderstood what a .sty file was. I didn't realize a .sty file was the same as a package. I had a standalone .sty file that I wanted to incorporate into my document. In order to do it I did the following (I am using TeXworks/MiKtex on Windows):

  • Create a new directory "C:/Local Tex Files/tex/latex/misc" and put the file "myfile.sty" in there.
  • Go into the MikTex settings and add "C:/Local Tex Files" as a root directory.
  • Add "\usepackage{myfile}" to the document preamble.
