Thanks. I notice that when one sets a root file with a chapter file
on top, the program writes a file with the name <chapterfile>.texshop
and this file contains only the name of the root file. It might be
possible to just write my own .texshop files (or duplicate and rename
the existing .texshop files). On the other hand, maybe using the %!
TEX .... construction would be better.
