Within Cygwin I use vim to write my .tex file, then compile with
I then view the .pdf file with Adobe Reader (outside Cygwin that is, I just double-click the .pdf file from within a windows 'explorer' window).
If I then edit my .tex file and recompile with pdflatex I have to first close the file in Reader, otherwise pdflatex complains that the file is being used and will note write the updated .pdf file.
On my Mac at home (using the in-built PDF viewer 'Previwer') I do not need to close the .pdf I am viewing -- and furthermore the viewer will recognize that I have updated the .pdf and show me the new version. All quite nice really.
I would like to have similar behaviour on my work Cygwin system. Any ideas how I could do that?
Some technical details:
- using Cygwin v 1.7.15 (from
cygcheck) or CYGWIN_NT-6.1-WOW64 (from
- using Adobe Reader X version 10.1.6
