Hi,
I'm using Scrivener 3 with MMD6 - I can't figure out where to put my .tex files...
With MMD6, the syntax for the metadata is 'latex config -> some-id', which leads to the files mmd6-some-id-leader, *-begin and *-footer to be inserted into the generated .tex-file.

When compiling via Multimarkdown->PDF, the tex-engine complains about being unable to locate these files.
Where do I have to copy them?

Thanks, Philipp

According to the well hidden readme in the mmd6 latex support files package installer (I used Pacifist to read it, or browse github source):

## Installation ##

These files need to go in your `texmf` folder, wherever that may be.

With MacTeX on Mac OS X:

~/Library/texmf/tex/latex/mmd

On most *nix accounts, you can use:

~/texmf/tex/latex/mmd

I don't remember off the top of my head where your texmf folder belongs in
Windows.
