# How to replicate TeXify / Yap current page display behavior with PDFTeXify / Adobe Reader?

After TeXify finishes, Yap displays the same page it was on prior to the TeXify.

How do I replicate this behavior with PDFTeXify / Adobe Reader so that it displays the same page I was on prior to the recompile?

Presently, Reader displays the first page by default after PDFTeXify creates the pdf file.

Thanks.

Current setup: MikTex 2.9, WinEdt 7.0, Adobe Reader X and Yap 2.9.

If Adobe Reader is not an absolute requirement I would try Sumatra PDF. It works the way you want it without any further hassles. Otherwise DDE commands to Adobe Reader are most likely necessary. –  Alexander Sep 13 '12 at 22:37

• For the call of pdflatex you need to add the command line switch --pdf to texify.
