I'm using Texmaker 4.4.1, and I want to be able to jump to pdf (Ctrl+RClick) from the tex script, and vice versa.

I tried to use the tips of -synctex=1 in the PDFLatex command, but it doesn't seem to work, nor does the tip here.

My PDFLatex command is

"C:/Program Files (x86)/MiKTeX 2.9/miktex/bin/pdflatex.exe" -interaction=nonstopmode -synctex=1 -shell-escape %.tex

Thank you!

    (1) 4.5 is the latest version, (2) do you have spaces in files or folder names leading up to your tex file? This may confuse synctex (it shouldn't anymore). Plus to go grom tex to PDF it is CTRL+space (I think), Ctrl+R-click is from the PDF to the tex source – daleif Mar 8 '16 at 9:26
  • Thanks! I did check that there are no spaces, and it still doesn't work neither from the pdf to the tex, nor the other way around. – Amir Sagiv Mar 8 '16 at 10:10
  • Are yo using the Texmaker buit-in pdf viewer or some external pdf viewer like Adobe Acrobat, Foxit etc ? – AJN Mar 8 '16 at 12:17

  • @daleif You probably should post that as an answer. Had the same issue, noticed a special character ('ü') in the path and that was the trouble maker. – ruhig brauner Oct 26 '17 at 12:54

In Options->Confige TexMaker->Commands in Padflatex you should write pdflatex -synctex=1 -interaction=nonstopmode %.tex, or full path to pdflatex.exe. After compilation with .log, .aux and other files this .synctex.gz extra file is created. From the .synctex.gz it reads instructions how to connect buit-in Viewer with code. If you delete this file, close the Viewer and re-open it, program won't be able to jump to code lines.
