is there a way to make a link file (under windows the extension is always .lnk :-( (so here we will have something.gds.lnk) be recognized as a valid gds file for use as a library?
Let me explain:
I have several gds file for different projects, located in different directory, which i want to be used as library, but i want to keep the gds file within these directory structure, not in a big and large single directory as libraries is.
Making a link does not work, since klayout do not recognize them as a valid gds library (or oasis),at least in windows, but this would be the ideal way.
Having a copy is not a good solution, since keeping everything updated can become a big mess.
