The procedure is given here.

If you want to use forward search better use as pdf viewer e.g. sumatra. With adobe viewer it doesn't work well.

Apart from this you will have to adapt the DDE name in execution modes, tab "pdf viewer". R17 is probably too old, I have currently R20:

  • Well, I have found that field but I do not know how do I update it . Just entering AcroviewR20 ? I.e. just rewriting R17 ? How did you get know that I'm using R17 ? Aug 10 '20 at 16:26
  • if you have the newest acrobat reader. The value changes every year. Aug 10 '20 at 16:28
  • Your error message shows "AcroviewR17". Aug 10 '20 at 16:29
  • Well, how do I update it, just by rewriting R17 to R20 in that field ? Or shall I update AR first ? Aug 10 '20 at 16:30
  • I have written there R20 and the error ceases but I still do not know what the Forward Search is supposed to do. Aug 10 '20 at 16:34
