# Set a path relative to $UserBaseDirectory in the option inspector Is there a way to set a setting in the option inspector to a path that is relative to some global Mathematica variable? I'm trying to set up a default stylesheet by setting DefaultStyleDefinitions to a style sheet located in$UserBaseDirectory/SystemFiles/FrontEnd/StyleSheets. I need the setting to be independent of the path to $UserBaseDirectory because I'm using the same settings on different machines where my user's directory has different names. But setting it to a value containing$UserBaseDirectory didn't work.

I just found out that I can use a path like "~/Library/Mathematica/SystemFiles/FrontEnd/StyleSheets/My Default.nb" for that setting, which solves my problem as I only need this setting to work on OS X. But I would still be interested in an answer to my question. –  Feuermurmel Aug 13 '13 at 8:21
