I have a functional setup that does bidirectional search between
emacs (auctex) and
okular but lacks the highlighting of the position in pdf.
In "conventional" editors, e.g. texstudio, when doing forward search the pdf is highlighted with a yellow background helping me to locate the correct position in pdf.
Can achieve this with auctex-okular? Currently forward search jumps to the correct page in okular but it is my job to identify the exact point.
My current setup, inspired by this QA, is as follow:
'(TeX-source-correlate-method (quote synctex)) '(TeX-source-correlate-mode t) '(TeX-source-correlate-start-server t) '(TeX-view-program-list (quote (("Okular" "okular --unique %o#src:%n%b")))) '(TeX-view-program-selection (quote ((engine-omega "dvips and gv") (output-dvi "xdvi") (output-pdf "Okular") (output-html "xdg-open"))))
