This question already has an answer here:
- MacTeX -aux-directory=DIR 2 answers
This is a rookie follow up question to the question here: Need *.aux file in separate folder
The answer says:
"In MiKTeX you can additionally set
--aux-directory=dir which will put only the auxiliary files in this directory."
How do I apply this
--aux-directory=dir to MiKTeX? Do I put it in the preamble of my document? I can't get the interpreter to parse it.
[Follow up from T.D.'s excellent answer]
T.D. - I use TeXShop, which is the normal Mac build I believe. I have put that code everywhere I can think of in the options, the most promising looking spots were in the screen below. Sadly, no love - it obstinately continues to put the aux files next to each of my .tex files (in all folders, which is what I'm trying to avoid).
Any TeXShop users have any ideas? Thanks!
