I didn't find anything in Application Support concerning TexShop.
help.

I have tried pdfsync and that seems to work, up to a point.

The folder setup for this project is as follows

X/base/...  containing .tex files to be included
X/var1/main.tex
X/var2/main.tex

The main.tex files \input files from ../base and  use different font
packages.

Using pdfsync I can jump to a .tex file from the preview window.
The other way round seems impossible. I have tried setting project
Root and using a %!TEX root=.. lines (temporarily since the main file
is variable and not located in the same relative place).

I have also noticed that for a project as in this case you must have
the window containing the root file active for executing a typeset.
Otherwise TexShop will typeset the wrong file and you'll get LaTeX
errors.
