I use TeXstudio and for some reason the jump to source button disappeared on my newly compiled files when I right click, but it is still there when I compile older files. The packages I used are the same, what is causing the problem?

The use manual says:

TexMakerX provides an integrated pdf-viewer which offers forward- and inverse-search. Make sure that synctex is activated in the pdflatex command (option -synctex=1 needs to be added), though TexMakerX will ask you if it can correct the command itself if it is not set correctly.

This option is activated, so why is the button still gone?

  • actually I found it under advanced options, it was always there but the button is still missing!? – Lost1 Feb 3 '14 at 14:41

    What is your OS? Are you using -synctex=1 with pdflatex? – Sigur Feb 3 '14 at 14:45
  • @Sigur yes, these were default settings I never touched. my OS is windows 7. I have a problem with my OS right now, because the IT services at my university reinstalled it for me after I had a system crash, but they did not activate it. Surely that cannot be the root of the problem though? – Lost1 Feb 3 '14 at 14:47
  • After running pdflatex (via editor) can you find on the same folder some compressed file with synctex on its name? – Sigur Feb 3 '14 at 14:49
  • @Sigur no! but they are there for previously built files – Lost1 Feb 3 '14 at 14:50

I have solved this. This is the problem which occurs here

http://sourceforge.net/p/texniccenter/user-reports/1296/

Basically it does not work because there is a space in the file name.

    Just in case someone have the same problem, it does happen if you have special characters like "ç, ã" in your file name as well. – HericDenis Nov 29 '17 at 12:59
  • Spaces and Accented characters MAY cause a problem on SOME (not all) systems. the problems as linked with TeXnicCenter were due to DDE not handling those characters. – user170109 Mar 26 at 17:52

I am not sure if it is so generally. In my case, I changed from -synctex=0 to -synctex=1 in my default compiler Xelatex. Try to change it at the place of your default compiler instaed.

  • Thanks a lot, it works for my XeLatex. – Yan King Yin Jul 20 '17 at 7:55

I faced the same situation. I updated the system and installed texstudio-dbg from synaptic package. Then it's working.
