The embedded PDF viewer in TeXstudio loads and opens automatically the corresponding LaTeX files when I scroll through the PDF document. Since I have a lot of LaTeX files I would like to open the corresponding LaTeX file only on request (e.g. via context menu entry "Goto sourcecode"). Is this somehow possible?

  • you can only disable synctex for all files – user2478 Dec 10 '15 at 13:36
  • When I write a document with multiple .tex files with include and if I travel along the pdf document, if I click on "go to source", it opens the right .tex file even if it is not already open. Is that your question ? – Jérôme Dequeker Dec 10 '15 at 13:37
  • I just want to switch out the automatic opening of the corresponding LaTeX source files; only open on request. – sigbert Dec 10 '15 at 14:03
  • Meaning you want to use your IDE as an ordinary PDF viewer? (I guess I don't understand the question). – BMWurm Dec 10 '15 at 14:46
  • Nope. TeXstudio opens now a lot of (small) LaTeX files when I scroll through the PDF view. I not even touched these files or plan to touch them. Thus, I want to keep the functionality but want to switch out the automatic opening. – sigbert Dec 10 '15 at 14:54

You can deactivate the forward and/or reverse synchronization in the statusbar of the viewer:
