I'am running pdflatex from Texshop 3.18 on OS X 10.8.4 with Synctex and the inverse search is not working, meaning from the output pdf back to the source window. Command left clicking the pdf does nothing.

The opposite, from source to preview is not a problem.

As detailed in an earlier question, I've set the sync method to synctex and pdflatex is configured as follows:

pdflatex --shell-escape --file-line-error --syncteX=1

    Are you sure about --syncteX=1? It should be --synctex=1 – egreg Jul 18 '13 at 21:25
  • @egreg, I changed it as you suggested and it unfortunately makes no difference. – Maurits Jul 18 '13 at 21:41
  • Sorry, but on my machine it works. – egreg Jul 18 '13 at 21:47

Exactly the same problem here, with os x 10.7 too, not only with 10.8. As suggested in http://mactex-wiki.tug.org/wiki/index.php/TeXShop_Synchronization I have added to this line in the ENGINE preferences

pdflatex --shell-escape --synctex=1

the option


so that the result now is

pdflatex --shell-escape --synctex=1

And now the synctex is well.
