This is not a feature of the editor but of your TeX system. On the Mac,
MacTeX is the normal set up and as you note uses ~/Library/texmf as the
root for local TeX files. On Windows, you might have TeX Live or MiKTeX
as your TeX system. The two work slightly differently:

- TeX Live uses %UserProfiel%\texmf, so for me C:\Users\joseph\texmf, as
the root

- MiKTeX does not have an 'out of the box' pre-defined local root, but
you can add one from the Settings panel.
