I'm searching a specific instrument for Latex. My teacher showed me it once, but i cannot remember the name. It's functional in general is for long files, with big amount of code and formula's: when you check compiled .pdf file for mistakes and see one, you can click on it and this instrument is sends coursor right to the code with in .tex file. So it is very easy to correct mistakes. Maybe someone knows name for it?

    Note that not every pdf viewer and not every text editor are able to do this – but for every operating system there are plenty that do.

    I voted to close this question because: 1. There is a possible solution in the comments. 2. The problem may be solved by itself because either OP remembered the name of the instrument he was looking for or found an alternative after one year. 3. It is very unlikely that another User will encounter the same problem.
