Compile current file only (cmake project)

I went through this conversation a few months ago and got nowhere with the answers I was getting. Either "build selection" does not work or its meaning has come to mean as I currently mean; that Is build a particular project of a session that has multiple projects. To this date I have not been able to figure out how to select just one file of a project a build just that. I often wonder why such a obvious feature that existed in Kdevelop 3.x does not exist in 4.x

If you figure it out please let me know

I, the unwilling, was lead by the unqualified, to do the unbelievable for so long with so little, that I attempted the impossible with nothing
