No: If I have a main file, then \include and \includeonly controls what should be in the main document. By my system, I may have a main document which is not altered while I write on additions: Suppose one has several chapters and writes on a new chapter. Then one still wants to access the main document for reference, while only recompiling the part one is writing on. Also, if I want to fix something in a part, then I can recompile only that part while doing the fix, and recompile the whole document only when that fix has been completed. Otherwise, I think that \include should be fixed so that it does not start each included file on a new page. (If it can be done -- \include probably works that way because of something with labels, or something.)   Hans Aberg
