See. I opened the LyX program. At the same time, in the folder listed in the Tools of Settings, the Time catalog creates a folder in the text box, for example, with the same name: lyx'tmpdir.gq1336. Tell me, please, is there a common name for this type of folder?

  • The tmpdir part of the name seems to indicate that this is a temporary folder (dir=directory=folder), or is that not what you mean by 'type of folder'?

  • I mean, that's what it is. So the name of the Temporary Folder is appropriate? Have you seen these folders yourself?

  • I'm not a LyX user so I have not seen this specifically, also I'm not really sure what you mean with 'a folder in the text box', is it visible in the interface somewhere? Maybe you can post a screenshot? Anyway, it is very common for programs to create temporary files and folders (not just LyX, many other programs do that too), that is normally not a problem.

  • Screenshot here: postimg.cc/64JZKnL5. you please sorry for the Russian language interface. It doesn't cause me any problems, I just write a blog in Russian language about this program and the problem was that I did not know in this blog how to call this folder, Well, in my opinion, this problem has already been solved in this discussion.

  • Thanks for the screenshot. When I put временный каталог in Google Translate it also says "temporary directory".
