TeXShop as viewer for TexmakerX with synctex?

Postby elwood151 » Mon Feb 21, 2011 4:22 pm

Hi,

I'd like to try TeXShop as a PDF viewer for use with TexmakerX as editor.

The question is:
Can I use synctex to jump from source in TexmakerX to pdf in TeXShop and vice versa?
(I did not manage to make it work yet).

Howdy,

I doubt it but I'll look into the matter. Does TeXMakerX support synctex?
Good Luck,

Hi Herbert,

it would be great if it would be possible to use TexMakerX as Editor and TeXShop as Viewer.
I like TeXShop a lot (also as editor), but for my large phd thesis project, navigation is quite difficult and TexmakerX has some promising features (as folding, a document-structure-tree for navigation, ...)

Yes, TexMakerX should support synctex.

It is said to work with Skim, however I
a) was not able to make that work with Skim 1.3.12 and
b) would prefer TeXShop as viewer.

I have Inverse and forward search working perfectly under MacOs 10.6.
TeX editor: TeMakerX compiled the SVN version that corrects an annoying issue: Skim used to launch a new instance of TexmakerX each time
PDF viewer: Skim

Settings:

* TeXmaker>Options>Configure...>Commands>Pdf Viewer: "/Applications/Skim.app/Contents/SharedSupport/displayline @ ?am.pdf ?c:ame"

* Skim>Preferences>Sync>Custom Command "/Applications/texmakerx.app/Contents/MacOS/texmakerx" and Argument ""%file" -line %line"

Thanks for all your work, it is a great tool.

Kind regards

Howdy,

it's certainly possible to set up TeXShop for use ans an external editor. I'd try looking in the Help->TeXshop Help Panel… for more information. I don't at all know if if synctex will work between the two applications but I kind of doubt it unless others can come up with more information.
Good Luck,

Howdy,

I just checked with Dick Koch and he said that synctex between a TeXshop Preview window and an external editor definitely isn't there. So it looks like you're out of luck there.

By the way, I thought TeXMaker had its own internal Preview display.
Good Luck,

OK, thanks Herbert for the clarification.

You're right, TexmakerX has its own preview window, but this did not have a 2 page view up to now and it had some other disadvantages.
Finally, I liked the TexShop preview very much..

So I set it up with Skim now as the viewer and that works quite well..

Kind regards, Martin
