I have started using latexindent recently and found it to be really useful in beautifying latex documents. I am creating this issue to bring to your attention the peculiar behavior of the -c switch that's supposed to move latexindent-generated files to a specified directory. When I use -c=build, latexindent does the following: - moves only the backup files, and - renames the indent.log file to buildindent.log and keeps it in the main directory. However, -c=build/ (notice the trailing slash) gives the desired behavior. In your SO answer <https://tex.stackexchange.com/a/144264/180993> you have not included the trailing slash (the cause of the unexpected behavior), however, in your documentation <https://latexindentpl.readthedocs.io/en/latest/sec-how-to-use.html> you have used a trailing slash when defining the path for the cruft directory. So, you may want to add some clarifying remarks in your documentation emphasizing the use of a trailing slash. Thanks! — You are receiving this because you are subscribed to this thread.
