`Run All` in an Rmd file with child documents

rmarkdown

Hey all! I have a fairly large markdown document, and I split it up into child documents to make it easier to manage. My workflow is typically to quickly prototype code by going back and forth between the console and the source file.

Trouble is, compiling the document doesn’t make the variables available in my console environment—which is part of what Run All does in side the markdown document. But Run All doesn’t seem to be aware of child documents and doesn’t run them.

Is it possible to make it aware? Is there a hack around this?
