Where to provide Library Path

In olden times of functional C++ Builder 5 and C++ Builder 6, there was, provided on the Project Options | Directories and Conditionals, a convenient expandable list entitled "Library path". One could provide as many paths to lib files as needed.

Now, in the faint days of XE4, XE7, and XE 10.1, this convenient place seems to not be available.

Where, please, does one provide a path to a folder containing many and sundry .lib files?

Thanks in advance.

You should not have looked for a lot because it is what appears when you open the project options for the first time n
the sesion.

Project Options --> C++ (Shared Options)

Note that you can now enter paths for each configuration and platform.

The library path for the debug configuration has this path by default:
$(BDSLIB)\$(PLATFORM)\debug

Should the release configuration not have the equivalent path for it?
If yes then is there a fault with the default project options?

The path to the release libraries is already in the global library path. Look at:

Tools menu --> Options... --> Enviroment Options
--> C++ Options --> Path and Directories
