Create a text file "mytweaks.tex" and put them there. Save the file in your

I put it in: /usr/local/texlive/2011/texmf. Is that right?

```Actually, that would be the main distribution tree. The local TEXMF
tree would normally be under your user directory. On linux it is
usually ~/texmf, on the mac I suspect it probably is ~/Library/texmf
or perhaps ~/Application Support/texmf. Mac people would know more.
As a general rule, it is always better to put your personal additions
to the tex collection in your lcal tree. That way they will not be
overrun/erased/forgotten when you update texlive.

```Thanks, Stefano. I moved it to: ~/library/texmf. Or should it go in:
~/library/texmf/tex/latex?

```
The latter. It's a general rule that your local tree should "look like" the main tree, and that means that LaTeX packages go under tex/latex/.
