With Emacs 24.3 on Mac OS X, I have used the method described in the answer by CodeKingPlusPlus at Emacs AUCTeX View command to use C-c C-v to open compiled latex PDFs using Preview.app.
After switching to Emacs 24.4 (but using the same AUCTeX version and .emacs file) it is not working anymore. For C-c C-v now I get the error "No appropriate .dvi file could be found". I thought maybe I need to do
M-x customize-variable again to set the variable
TeX-command-list, but this variable doesn't exists anymore.
C-c C-v is bound to the command
tex-view, which, by definition attempts to open a .dvi file. The command invoked seems to be described by the variable
tex-dvi-view-command, but changing that to
open -a Preview *.pdf or something similar doesn't help anything. So this may be only for .dvi files, but I don't see any other command for .pdfs.
C-c C-c is also working strangely. In 24.3 it offered a command (usually
View) depending on whether the .tex file needed compilation. Now it always offers
\doc-view, and any time I want to compile, I need to enter
Enter to run
Any help with getting Preview to open and making compiling easier would be much appreciated.
