Sumatra PDF now with forward and inverse search support

Postby propell on Fri Jun 6th, 2008

Just a quick note to inform you that the Sumatra PDF viewer now supports forward and inverse search using the pdfsync package:

http://blog.kowalczyk.info/forum_sumatr ... 8&Posts=16

This is a really useful feature that allows you to jump back and forth between your tex source and pdf. Thanks to pdfsync the corresponding location in the pdf or tex source will automatically be located.

Some notes on how to set this up using WinEdt, TeXnicCenter and Emacs can be found here:

Note: It seems that future versions of pdftex will include the functionality of pdfsync (called synctex).

Hi,

thanks for the information! At the moment I am not using Windows but after reading your posting I recommended your note to a windows user.

Hello Kjell,

what a pleasure to have you here. And many thanks for this contribution. I hope we will see your here solving some tricky problems with pgf/tikZ. I myself am on the threshold of changing from PSTricks.

Thank you Thorsten for the warm welcome! Looking forward to answer any TikZ related questions :)

I switched from PSTricks to TikZ a few years ago. I miss some of the user contributed pst-xx packages, but I have never regretted the switch.

Support for synctex in Sumatra PDF is now on the way:

PdfTeX 1.40.8 with synctex support has not been officially released yet, but it will be part of TeXLive 2008. I'm sure it will be updated quickly in MikTeX when it is released.

Great news. MikTeX has actually shipped with beta a version of 1.40.8 for a couple of weeks now. A build of SumatraPDF with synctex support can be downloaded from here:
http://william.famille-blum.org/blog/in ... 612-040012

I have tried it with WinEDT and it seems to work well.

fyi: a way to setup Sumatra PDF for TexmakerX:
http://www.xnoiz.co.cc/latex-texmakerx-with-sumatrapdf/

(written it as it was not actually so easy to find the required command format.. [note the """ sequences in the cmd :) ])

comments and suggested improvements are welcome ;)

Is it also possible to do forward search somehow if you compile to PDF via a DVI file? I have to compile via latex -> dvips -> ps2pdf, because I use PSTricks, and then the forward search doesn't seem to work.

I guess it's a bit much to ask for - but it would be really nice :D

EDIT: Oh wow, I just randomly fell over the solution myself: I simply have to add "-synctex=-1" to the latex compilation options - then it works perfectly both with forward and inverse search! :lol:
