Hello Hans,

I read your post today ;-|

In the past, that is in the pdfTeX time, I used this feature as follows:

\useexternaldocument[Taptones][c_tap-tones.pdf][Chapter about using tap-tones]


This is a test to jump to another file
\goto{Jump to tap-tones}[Taptones::]


I tested it with a recent version of MKIV and it works.

I hope this can help you setup your project successfully.
