Re: [Orgmode] Latex preview - working directory

One solution would be to put you math definitions into a .sty file instead of a .tex file so that you can use \usepackage{vlstyle} instead of \input.  If you put (or symlink) the file in your local texmf path it should work.  I do this for my math shortcuts and it works fine with org-mode.  To make it into a .sty file you just have to put \ProvidesPackage{vlstyle} on the first line of the file, import any dependencies, e.g. amsmath, with a \RequirePackage declaration and end the file with \endinput. If it is just a bunch of \newcommand, \renewcommand, \def and \DeclareMathOperator declarations then there shouldn't be any problem.

Hi guys,

I just wanted to try out the latex snippet preview. There is a problem
with that since I have in my org-document the following preamble:

#+LATEX_HEADER: \input{../vlstyle}

which refers to a .tex-file relative to the location of my document. The
file contains some definitions for math. symbols I need in many
documents, so I extracted them into an external file.

Since the preview-snippets are compiled in /tmp/ Latex cannot find the
vlstyle.tex and the compilation fails.

Is there another way to get previews except specifying an absolute path
to the vlstyle.tex? Maybe sth. with org-babel? But it shouldn't be too
long since I would have to add that to every new document I write.
