When you're working on a reasonnably large project, it's simply easier to
split it. For example, having each chapter in it's own file, instead of

Found a list of files in a directory, each file was quite small is
size. That's what started to think whether a master document is
appropriate or not. If styles are extensive in each of the small
files, importing them into a new file would be expected to retain
styles and therefore make navigation via 'navigator' to be more
convenient than opening multiple individual files
