TeXShop uses actually a combination of SyncTeX and PDF search, even in
SyncTeX mode. In I understood correctly off-list explanations from
Dick Koch, SyncTeX returns a line in source or preview, and TeXShop
adds PDF search on top of this to find a more precise spot within this
You can see the difference by comparing with TeXworks <http://www.tug.org/texworks/
- TeXworks, which is cross-platform, uses SyncTeX only and highlights
whole lines in source or preview as a result.
- TeXShop adds the Mac-only PDF search to SyncTeX and highlights bits
of text or maths in the lines of source or preview.
