I have a huge set of .tex files which compile into a single document. I have recently switched to Kile on Unbuntu (love it so far). However I see that forward search from source files other than the root don't work because Kile doesn't know how they fit into the document as a whole, unless they are included in a Kile project (the error message is ".pdf does not exist; did you compile the source file?").
I assume that creating a Kile project and adding the existing source files is the way to solve this. But how can I do that efficiently? It seems I have to add files in one folder at a time.
Edit: What I really want is to be able to do forward-search in Kile with nested source files. I don't particularly care if I have a Kile project file. How do I do that?
