Forcing Texifier to open non-standard included files
This article concerns the
See other variants:

By default Texifier, on both iOS and macOS, examines your LaTeX source and opens any subfiles that have been included using tags such as

Including files in your LaTeX document
\usepackage{a}    % a.sty
\usepackage{subdirectory/b}    % b.sty in directory 'subdirectory'

Not only are these subfiles opened automatically, they’re listed in the Outline View for you to work with all your LaTeX code as a single project.

On iOS, these tags are even more crucial when working with Dropbox or using the cloud typesetter: files are detected for downloading from Dropbox and for dispatching to the cloud typesetters based on these tags.

If there are files that are not being recognised by default by Texifier, it is very likely to be due to their having a non-standard file extension. You may force Texifier to load such files using the following comment in your LaTeX source:

%force-texpad-dependency: file.ext

Note that the full or the relative path of the file must be specified including the extension.

The Windows variant of this article will be updated in due course. To try out Texifier for Windows before it is publicly released, please sign up for a beta.
