Howdy,

I just played around with it bit and it seemed to work. Using \include
{} with absolute paths didn't seem to compile; at least with \include
{/Users/myname/Desktop/testf1/test1}. As long as I stayed with
relative paths I was able to go two deep in two different directories
off of the Desktop where the test.tex root file was located. I made
sure that each of the included files had a line like

%!TEX root = (relative path back to root)

and was able to go sync in either direction between the .pdf and
proper .tex file.

Certainly a simple test and not exhaustive.

Good Luck,

Herb Schulz
