I would like to use Atom in Windows as my primary editor for LaTeX documents. However, the synchronization features of Atom's pdf-view (which is leveraged by latex-plus) requires a
synctex binary. It will use the binary if it is in the %PATH%, or it can be specified in the settings.
The MikeTeX package I've been using does not seem to ship with any such binary.
Q - What is the best way to obtain the synctex binary that pdf-view is looking for?
- ig0774 confirms MikeTeX does not include synctex binary
- Reporting a possible enhancement for latex-plus plugin to be more graceful
I'm using MikeTeX 2.9.5496 on a Windows machine, and trying to get Atom set up as my default editor in that environment.
I've been using TeXStudio for a couple years now using the proTeX installer in Windows (and on Ubuntu too with TexLive powering it) and have been very happy with it, but am trying to set up an alternative.
As stated on the LaTeX Editors/IDEs entry, it should work with a combination of plugins for best performance.
I've installed the following plugins to get this working:
Everything is working except for the synchronization features.
