As discussed here pdflatex preview problem: white pdf pages with only hyperref-rectangles visible during compile? when working on my dissertation which takes a long time to compile (even when compiling single chapters with
includeonly it takes 1..3 minutes to compile with latexmk, I can not view the last version of the pdf to continue working during compiling time which breaks my workflow and makes me wasting time waiting while I could continue editing my document.
I'm working with TeXShop 2.43 on MacOS 10.6.8 with TeXLive 2011. The question is
- how can I keep browsing my pdf (in the last compiled version) as long as pdflatex compiles
- and how can I use
synctexfor jumping from the source file to the pdf and back?
A first suggestion (thanks, jonalv) was
latexmk -pdf text.tex && mv text.pdf viewMe.pdf
synctex will not be working with the changed file name, especially as it is different from the name of the main file. Is there a way to do it with synctex working?
