# reledmac/reledpar: Placing the generated auxiliary / helper files in a seperate folder

When using the reledmac/reledpar packages a lot of auxiliary or helper files are generated (see screenshot, e. g. .1, .1R, .Aend, .eledsec1, ...).

# Problem / Question

I will have a large document and these files make it a bit messy.

Is there a way to put these files in a sub-folder, e. g. called temp?

# Code for the Screenshot Result

\documentclass[]{scrbook}

\usepackage[]{reledmac}
\usepackage[]{reledpar}

\begin{document}

\begin{pairs}
\begin{Leftside}
\beginnumbering
\pstart

\pend
\endnumbering
\end{Leftside}

• ps : you could also use the noend option and noeledsec option, if you not need the eledxxx command or endnotes. May 18 '16 at 15:09
• @Maïeul Ok - I just created an Issue (#526) on github. Thanks a lot. May 18 '16 at 16:11

According to the package author's comment on github my problem cannot be solved within the package.

Update 7th June 2016

See https://github.com/maieul/ledmac/issues/526 New option auxdir available (e. g. \usepackage[auxdir=TempFolder]{reledmac})
