Though I consider myself a veteran latex user, it's only now that I  
realized the functionality of "E" on the console! Not only does it  
work with TeXShop, but it also works correctly with \include'd files.  
That's great news to me because I've always I wished for a "go to  
error"  (on texshop's console) that works with \include'd files (go- 
to-error always opens the root file). Until now, I had to figure the  
line where the error occurred, then manually locate that line in the  
\include'd source file. Apparently, E on the console does exactly that.

My enthusiasm is based on one successful test - I don't know if  
robustness depends on the synchronization engine.
