I tried to make a project setup in Kile, making the XeLaTeX command output directory
../output as an experiment. It 1) didn't work and 2) can't be changed back.
Now whenever I try to run the command, it says
[XeLaTeX] Could not change to the folder path-to-parent-directory/output., and if I try to change the settings back, it simply ignores the change for the next time I open settings. I now have to run xelatex from the Kile commandline, which gets annoying in the long run.
Has anyone managed to get this kind of setup to work, and how?
And how do I get changes to stick?
All in all, the Kile settings wizard seems a bit unstable, with the 'apply'-button only appearing on correct manipulation of window size and whatnot.
