There is a shortcut that enables one to directly jump from the editor of Texmaker 4.5 to the .pdf file and vise versa.

Ctrl+space : editor --->  .pdf
Ctrl+click : .pdf   --->  editor

When the above are used you are directed to the exact paragraph that you have selected. Ctrl+Space, additionally, briefly highlights that specific paragraph with a red box.

However, this does not always work properly and instead you are directed at the top of the current page or not working at all. Is this a bug or a feature and how can one ensure that this always works?

  • This seems related (but maybe isn't a duplicate) to tex.stackexchange.com/questions/224010/…

  • It is actually a somewhat different problem, but concerning the same feature of Latex. No answers there, too!
