I am working in Kile with a latex project composed of several files. I use ``Define current document as Master document'' to enable compiling the main file, even when I am browsing a different file. Defining a master document also enables inverse and forward search well. However, I do not get the macro auto-completion I like so much.

That is, suppose in main.tex I have a definition \newcommand{\sub}[1]{A_{#1}}

When I start typing \su in the main.tex I will get the suggestion \sub{x} but if do the same in another document, I don't get the suggested auto-complete.
