I already know how to use a central .bib-file on my Mac or on Windows. I just use the absolute path to the file (which I can store in a Dropbox folder). On my Mac I use for example something like this:
But since the folder structure is different on Windows, I'd like to know how I can use one
.bib-file which is shared between Windows and Mac without changing the path in the respective
.tex-file is also shared via Dropbox.)
I read of the possibility to save a file in the folder of the TeX distribution, but I don't know how I can refer to that folder within my document. Can I then just use a relative path as if the file would be in the folder of the specific document? Or is there another way?
