Under Windows, any current version.

In povray.imi, you need something like this :
Library_Path="C:\Users\<user>\POV Images"

You can have any number of «Library_Path», and they'll be explored in order.

And, in pvengine.ini, lines like this :
[Permitted Input Paths]
1=%INSTALLDIR%
2=%PROFILEDIR%
3=%FONTDIR%
4="C:\Users\<user>\POV Images"

The first 3 lines shoupd already be present. Don't change them.
The paths here must match those added in povray.ini.

The paths in povray.ini tell where to look.
The paths in pvengine.ini tell where you are allowed to look.

How do I specify the INI file in qtpovray? I don't know the correct menu
option.

(On Windows.)

Those should be the same as the regular POV-Ray files.

From POV-Ray for Windows, it's under Tools. The first two options.

You can also find those, along with several other, in the Documents folder.

Um, erm, I guess I didn't really set that up properly.

On my box, it is looking for
SYSINI = C:/Users/dick/Documents\qtpovray\v3.8\ini\povray.ini
but it doesn't exist and I don't care.  I guess I should.

A menu to pick whatever INI file I want like in standard POV-Ray for
Windows would be nice to have. Thanks!

I don't see a Tools menu. I only see File, Edit and Help.

Not normal. There are 8 more menu top items.
The following are missing : Search, Text, Editor, Insert, Render,
Options, Tools and Window.
