TexMaker, I want the files generated by the compilation of my
.tex files to be put in a subdirectory. I checked the box (by going to
Preferences > Commands)
use "build" subdirectory for output files
but I keep being prompted with the dialog "log file not found" multiple times during the compilation and, at the end, the files are not generated in any
build subfolder. This dialog is shown only if I have that box checked.
Currently, my quick build is "pdflatex + bib(la)tex + 2xpdflatex + pdfviewer".
More specifically, these are my configurations:
"/Library/TeX/Distributions/.DefaultTeX/Contents/Programs/texbin/pdflatex" -synctex=1 -interaction=nonstopmode %.tex
Bib(la)tex, if I use either
I keep being prompted with the dialog "log file not found".
How can I solve this problem? I have already looked around for solutions, but I've not managed to find one for my particular case that works.
By the way, I have all but the main
.tex file in a subdirectory called
/tex, in case it matters. I also tried to add at the end of the of the
pdflatex command the option
--output-directory=mysubdir or with
-output-directory=mysubdir, but the files are not generated in this my
mysubdir, which is not even created, on the other hand, in this case, I'm not being prompted with the "log file not found" dialogs.
pdflatex -help on the terminal, I see that my
pdflatex actually requires the option
-output-directory=mysubdir (i.e. with only one dash in the front), but the tooltip that pops up when I go over the checkbox
use "build" subdirectory for output files says that it's going to add the option
--output-directory=build (i.e. with two dashes in front). This could be a problem, but, in any case, I should be able to generate the compiled files in a subdirectory by adding the option manually to the
pdflatex command (as I did), but it doesn't generate the files in the subdirectory (as I said).
