I'm looking for a way to easily open files that are included in a document. For example if my document includes another tex document like this


I want to be able to place my cursor somewhere on chapter1 and press some key and the editor automatically opens chapter1.tex in a new tab. It should be an analogy to pressing F2-key in QT-Creator to open an included header file. A lot of other IDE's also have this functionality implemented.
Preferably I'm looking for a way to do this with Kile or TeXMaker, but I'm also interested in other editors having this functionality.


texstudio can do this with right click and "open filename":

  • Good suggestion, thanks. I'll see, if anyone will come up with a solution in Kile or TexMaker. If not, I'll except this. – Max Sep 12 at 13:40
  • texstudio is a fork of texmaker, very similar. Worth trying – Sybil Sep 12 at 13:40
  • I don't like texstudio, because of its implementation of placeholders. You can't use tab to switch to next placeholder while at the same time preserving tabs functionality - if not on a placeholder - of insert a whitespace. – Max Sep 12 at 14:28
