Synctex makes it possible to jump between your LaTeX code and the compiled PDF, which is absolutely great, if you have larger documents. However it is my impression that when you use environments, Synctex jumps only to the environment rather than the precise location you want to jump. This does not matter, if your environments are small, but it is very annoying, if your environments are large. Is there any way around this problem, e.g. changing the implementation of the environment or reconfiguring synctex etc.?

This questions is a result of discussion Comment Multi-line Text on Counter Condition, because the result of this dicussion is an environment that typically includes large quantities of text.

This question might be similar to SyncTeX functionality in TeXShop and TeXworks, but I am not specifically interested in TeXShop.

  • @Meneldur , You can try including more labels , subsections, citations so that inverse search becomes more precise instead of showing the whole section. With Texmaker and Texworks, you can do Forward search using structure tags on the left window to the PDF on the right window. Similarly Inverse search can be done using the PDF Bookmarks/table of contents back to .tex source. – texenthusiast Jun 19 '12 at 0:26
  • Feature requests for software are not something we can answer in a Q&A format. I've therefore closed this question, which would be best directed to the developers. – Joseph Wright Jul 8 '12 at 8:37
