I usually use many files at the same time, each from different path. To make it easier to organize, I would like to bookmark this frequent files. Something similar to office pin function you see in this image:

While textstudio doesn't seem to have this option, I tried to collect shortcuts of all .tex files in a folder lets say desktop.So in Ubuntu (Lubuntu to be precise), I made a shortcut of my .tex file on desktop. (Select the file in PCManFM and with menu Edit -> Create link) The problem is that when I open a shortcut, texstudio opens a copy of the file which is located in desktop and doesn't pick up the files from origin linked to shortcut.

Do you have any suggestion to fix my problem?

  • I've edited a symbolic link with TeXstudio and the original file (in another path of the same partition) was changed as expected. I make the symbolic link in a terminal with ln -s file link

  • It is strange because I use the same command but I still face the problem.

Not exactly what you are asking for, but maybe this could serve as a workaround:

Texstudio does allow to save so called Sessions - basically this means that texstudio remembers all the files which were open and reopens all of them if you use Restore Previous Session. Depending on your workflow you could either make a session that includes all your frequently used files or individual sessions for all of them.
