How to Make TeX Word, etc. aware of MacTex 2016?

I have updated to the full 2.8GB MacTeX 2016 distribution with no errors. I recently downloaded the full source file for building the tufte book documentation. I verified that TeXstudio compiles the .tex file and generates the .pdf file. But TeX Word gives errors that it cannot find .sty files. I've had similar problems with other .tex files where TeX Word couldn't find .sty and other types of LaTeX files. I'm sure it's a simple matter of making BaKoMa TeX aware of the path to the MacTeX 2016 distribution. Any help here would be appreciated.

All missing LaTeX packages may be installed as explained in FAQ on our site:
How to install new document class/package/font in BaKoMa TeX ?

In other side, you can attach alternative TEXMF tree in 'Options / Common Settings / Directories'
However, you must be care that packages of different versions may potentially conflict with each other.

I started out with slide rules and vacuum tubes back in the 1960s. Since then computers were invented and we've moved into the 21st century. In the 21st century, when I request specific style or documentclass files for my .tex document, the software should locate those files on my computer, and if the files are not on my computer, then the software should search for them on the Internet or elsewhere. I should not be required to search through millions of files on my computer and the Internet to find the necessary files and then copy and paste them into convenient locations for the software. My job is to figure out how to write the complicated .tex files and get my book published, not also to the software's work.

Attaching TEXMF tree is trivial procedure.
