This is not the behaviour I would call "to work with \input'ed  
files". This is the same behaviour TeXShop/psfsync would have with  
any bit of text or any macro.

What we need, either with \input, or with \include, is a mechanism  
which takes you to the place in the included file which corresponds  
to the place in the pdf file you command-clicked on.

Clearly, this does not work with \input. Does this work with \include ?

I don't remember precisely what worked or did not work with Textures,  
but it seems to me that Textures was able to search into \input'ed  
files. Can anybody confirm?
