Dear Colin,

Thank you for that detailed information!

Hello Takeshi,

I have a question regarding latex export.

When I export an org-mode to a latex file, a directory named "auto" is
created in the same folder as the tex file.

However, I couldn't find what line in the source code of org-mode
creates this directory.

Does anyone know what causes this, or what variables can be used to
control where the directory is created?
It allows AUCTeX to be aware of style files and multi-files. The default
is "auto/" in the working directory. However you set the directory
yourself. I have the settings:

(setq TeX-auto-local "/path/to/auto/dir") ;; Sets /auto/ directory.
(setq TeX-auto-save t) ;; Also sets lisp files to save in /auto/.

If you want to switch it off then try (setq TeX-auto-save nil). I have
never used that myself, so I don't know how successful it might be.

Best wishes
