I am not really sure what your actual issue is.

Do you want to generate a separate PDF for the appendix?  I have never
tried this but this could be what "Include only selected children" does.

I use the Child Document featrue on the "include" side exclusively, and
after editing a Child Document, to compile (only) it (with the
"inheritance" of the Parent Document).

This is obviously faster and while the references are wrong, it's good
enough for catching typos and the references come right on the main 
make run anyway.

And of course as I wrote previously, I am muddling the water by having a
joint "include.tex" with lots of conditionals.

There is always the "Help" feature.

As I said, I would take the opportunity to split a large document now 
while you are at it, will make things easier in the future...

greetings, el
