Hide .synctex files

Postby kkkwong » Fri Jul 14, 2017 7:30 pm

Hi! I use WinEdt 10.1 and Sumatrapdf. I find the inverse search extremely useful. However, the .synctex files are quite annoying to me because I work within a folder which contains up to a hundred tex files (and I arrange the files according to the time modified). In WinEdt, there is an option to put all the auxiliary files to a folder called "TeXAuX" which is very neat but somehow the .synctex file has to be in the same directory as the .tex file.

So my question is, is there a way (preferably by modifying the compile command within WinEdt's option) to change the attribute of the .synctex file to "hidden" immediately after compilation?

Thanks in advance!

The smart way: Calm down and take a deep breath, read posts and provided links attentively, try to understand and ask if necessary.
