I'm using Texmaker under Windows with latexmk. I use the quickbuild option latexmk + display PDF. To let all auxiliary files be generated in a subdirectory called "Output" I changed the command Texmaker uses to

latexmk -e "$pdflatex=q/pdflatex -synctex=1 -interaction=nonstopmode/" -pdf %.tex --aux-directory=%/Output.

This solution works perfectly fine, however, Texmaker seems not to find the generated logfile and displays the annoying message "Logfile not found". I found a workaround suggesting to put an empty file in the .tex file's directoy to suppress the error message, but I want to get informed about possible issues with the document. My question is therefore how I can let Texmaker find the actual log file in the "Output" folder. Thanks in advance!

  • ltx2any can deal with exactly this situation github.com/akerbos/ltx2any – user36296 Feb 28 '17 at 13:07
  • It even preserve the ability to use synctex, see github.com/akerbos/ltx2any/issues/75 – user36296 Feb 28 '17 at 13:15
  • Mhm, is there really no easier solution? :/ ltx2any looks powerful but I'm afraid I don't have the time at the moment to dive in as much as it seems to be necessary. Also: Does it work on Windows? (Which I am working with at the moment being the sole reason for me to ask this question as its Dropbox version does not support ignoring individual files -- only folders :|) – JKR Feb 28 '17 at 21:58
  • For windows you can find installation instructions: github.com/akerbos/ltx2any/wiki I don't understand what you are trying to tell me with the dropbox sentence. – user36296 Mar 1 '17 at 11:03
  • I don't know if there is an easier solution, I just know that lxt2any is designed to run in a subdirectory and is therefore really good at it. – user36296 Mar 1 '17 at 11:06
