### Scanning LaTeX Document

Hello!
When working with LaTeX, it is common to split a document into separate files, thus having a root files and several input files. I'm thinking there could be two ways to work this in Bookends: (1) to initiate the scan with the root file and for Bookends to automatically scan an input file whenever it encounters an \input command; or (2) to manually scan each input file. I guess (1) will require some development, so if settling with (2), is there a way to accumulate Hits rather than re-start the Hits list every time a scan is initiated?
Thanks!!

Jon

The way to do that would be like this:

1. Scan1
2. Move hits to new static group (scanned) (just drag them to the groups pane and it will do that for you).
3. Scan2
4. Drag hits to scanned
5. Scan3
etc.
