I am writing a project with texmaker, and i've separated it into several files, to keep it organized. But I run into the following problem - I have to define every startup that the main document is in master mode. (otherwise autocomplete of \cite{} wouldn't work in the included files).

Anyone got a solution for this ?

Since version 3.3.3 Texmaker has a "save session" menu item in the File menu (see the first record in the changelog at http://www.xm1math.net/texmaker/log.html).

So, open all the tex files you need, define the "Master document", as usual. Then do "save session".

Next time, open the session file, not the tex files. The master will be automatically "selected".
