I'm currently having a problem using TexMaker.

When I'm selecting a section of the document in the structure view, TexMaker jumps to this specific section within the tex document but also displays the error "File not found" and closes the pdf preview in the internal viewer.

This seems to be due to the fact that I'm using a subdirectory for the output files - but I don't seem to be able to find an option fixing this problem.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Just adapt the commands for the pdf viewer (Configure Texmaker -> commands) or use the "Use a 'build' subdirectory..." option for the (pdf)latex command.

Incase if you are the authors of Texmaker, please update your profile to let others know it and it will bring genuinity and weightage to your answers. A friendly suggestion: Do us a favour and change your username to something more telling than "user1234". – texenthusiast Mar 11 '14 at 19:16
I'm already using the "Use a 'build' subdirectory" option. Everything there works fine, unless I click on anything in the structure pane to navigate to a specific section of the tex document - then the error is shown and the preview is closed. – J K Mar 13 '14 at 9:23
