  • Thank you so much. How about if I want to check the spelling in my document, it says can not open the dictionary.Why? – Garry Sep 21 '14 at 13:38
  • Go to "Options -> Configure TeXMaker -> Editor" and you'll see a "Spelling dictionary" entry. You should check that it points to the directory where the dictionaries are. If it does not, change it to the appropriate directory. – Nico Vecchio Sep 21 '14 at 13:42

    @dcmst Well, I don't see the point of closing it, I don't see how this is off-topic. (Edit: If a clear duplicate exists, fine, I haven't looked, but closing as off-topic is IMO wrong.) – Torbjørn T. Sep 21 '14 at 14:13

To perform an inverse search you can "ctrl+click" on the PDF preview or right click and then clik on "click to jump to the line":

enter image description here

As @egreg points out, such information are easily found the user manual:

If you add the -synctex=1 option to the pdflatex command, the built-in pdf viewer will jump directly to the position in the PDF file that corresponds to the current line in the (La)TeX source file. Reciprocally, with a right-clic on a word in the built-in pdf viewer (context menu), the editor will jump to the corresponding line in the source file.

  • Remark : if you press the ctrl+space key (ctrl+$ on MacOsX) in the built-in pdf viewer, the focus go to the editor.
