Root File Definition

Postby denisyuk23 » Tue Sep 20, 2011 4:08 pm

Hi,

I'm using TeXworks and TeX Live. The project files are stored in several folders, e.g. .../Tex/Introduction/intro.tex and the main.tex-file is stored in .../Tex/main.tex

I put the command % !TEX root = //homefolderOnServer/.../Tex/main.tex
at the beginning of the file intro.tex, but on compilation it tries to access the file path //homefolderOnServer.../Tex/Introduction///homefolderOnServer/.../Tex/main.tex and subsequently can't read the main.tex file.

Can anyone tell me why TeXworks joins the file paths of the intro and main file? And how do I prevent this?

Thanks!


Found the solution by myself.
It works if I use a relative path: /../main.tex
...so simple.
