I'm writing my thesis in LaTeX using Sublime-Text3. Since my document is quite extensive, it's easier for me to handle it in a project. Also suggested by LaTeXing Guide (part2). My .sublime-project file is as follows:

    "path": "(full path)"
    "root": "thesis1.tex",
    "pdf": "thesis1"



My packages.tex contains:

\usepackage{graphicx, subfigure, afterpage, etoolbox, amssymb}
\usepackage{mathtools, amsthm, epigraph, csquotes,emptypage}
\usepackage[pass,paperwidth=159mm,paperheight=254mm,margin=0mm,outer=0mm,text={120mm,200mm}]{geometry}% royal octavo

You also need to create at least Part1.tex and Part2.tex, which can contain anything.

First of all:

\cite{} does not work in the main body, neither inside Part1 nor Part2, message:

Status: cannot find any corresponding items


Suppose I \label{} on Part1.tex, if I \ref{} inside that document, ST pops up a window showing the options defined inside the same document, which is alright, but suppose I'm writing now on Part2.tex and I try to \ref{}, nothing shows up, and I want ST to show me the labels defined on every document inside the project.

Tried %-*- root: thesis1.tex -*-

Tried include instead of import.

Tried fiddling with JSON as per the guide on LaTeXing official page but to no avail.

  • Unfortunately the plugin is not open source so these are just speculations: 1) the plugin looks only in the main file for bib files 2) \import is not supported. You can workaround both things by putting fake \input and \addbibresource after \end{document}: They get ignored by LaTeX but not by the plugin – Bordaigorl Jan 23 '16 at 17:11
  • Got it working by using \input and the %-*- root: thesis1.tex -*- in every subfile method, no need to use a .sublime_project file or \inputs after \end{document} – Vyraj Jan 25 '16 at 22:29
  • Yes input works, but if you want to keep using import the trick of using the input after end document is a valid workaround. What I did was to input a dummy tex file which inputed all my tex files; this dummy file was generated by listing all the tex files in the project so I would not need to manually update it every time I added a file – Bordaigorl Jan 26 '16 at 7:30

Got it working by using \input and the %-*- root: filename.tex -*- in every subfile method, no need to use a .sublime_project file or \inputs after \end{document}, although the workaround mentioned by @Bordagoil in the comments is very valid.
