# Jump between PDF and source file using a document split into master and child

I am searching for an editor which is capable to jump between lines in PDF view and source view, even if the document is split into multiple files. In my case I have a master, witch defines the general format and than a batch of files including the chapter with \include.

I actually tried Texmaker: I was glad with it but does not offer the wanted feature.

I tried with Gedit and its latex plugins, but Gedit keeps to crash if I even dare to open a child file.

So, is there actually a (open source) solution (for Linux/Ubuntu)?

WinEdt + Sumatra work for me, but this is not Linux bundle. I believe that exist similar combination, i.e. Sumatra + some editor work on the same way. –  Zarko Feb 21 at 2:47
Have you looked at something like Kile's project feature? (With Okular as viewer, say.) –  cfr Feb 21 at 2:56
Go to LaTeX Editors/IDEs, look for editors with Synctex. and test some. BTW: When you used Texmaker you could also take a look on TeXstudio. –  Speravir Feb 21 at 3:00
TexStudio is awesome IMHO. –  Nicholas Hamilton Feb 21 at 3:23
Texmaker can help you to get forward/backward sync between .pdf and .tex for master and child files for sure. if you have -synctex=1 option activated by pdflatex -synctex=1 -interaction=nonstopmode %.tex in texmaker configuration and "Define Current document as Master Document" by going to Texmaker Options menu, you should see forward/backward interaction between .pdf and source (.tex) and vice-versa. –  texenthusiast Feb 21 at 3:48

Texmaker does that out of the box like all the editors which support synctex (the synchronization is made by synctex) : just declare the "root" file as the "master document" (Options) and don't use spaces or special characters in the name of the file.
