I'm using TeXStudio on Windows 7 with MikTeX. I don't know how to get the "Jump to source" command that appears in the mouse right-click menu, in the pdf viewer, once I compile a *.tex file with Quick Build. This feature is present and works well in TeXStudio under UBUNTU 12.04. How can I get it in Windows 7 too?
You have to add
-synctex=1 to the commands:
pdflatex -synctex=1 -interaction=nonstopmode %.tex
xelatex -synctex=1 -interaction=nonstopmode %.tex
lualatex -synctex=1 -interaction=nonstopmode %.tex
After the next compilation there is a right-click menu item titled "Go to source" (Or shortcut
In my case, the option
-synctex=1 was in the command line. Yet it didn't work. What fixed it is deleting a file with the extension
*.synctex. After that, syncing worked perfectly. Apparently, the file was a remnant of a previous latex compilation on a different machine.
