Setting the root file via the File menu item is temporary. The next  
time you open TeXShop it will not be there and you've got to go  
through the rigamarole again. It is always better to place the line

%!TEX root = <path to root file>

(or %%!TEX ... or % !TEX ... --- the one above can give a problem in  
the rare case where you print the file via lp in Terminal directly to  
a Postscript printer) in each included file.

Good Luck,
