[OS X TeX] teashop sync

I am sorry if I was not clear.

When going from tex to pdf, I would like to sync from wherever the cursor is (usually, where I just edited) -- this is logically possible, of course, and I am used to it from my previous software. When going from pdf to tex, I cannot use the keyboard for obvious reasons, as you point out. The two issues are distinct. The first (source -> preview) is the more interesting one, to me.

This is one reason I'm confused. You talk about the keyboard and here you talk about Double-Clicking. Which is it? Double-Clicking on the Mac selects a word you can do that with the keyboard using Shift-Opt-Right Arrow. You say you want to sync between Source and Preview by Double-Clicking. You seem to feel it's OK to use the Mouse (Right-Click, choose Sync and Left-Click). Syncing does not go from where the insertion point is located but rather where the Mouse pointer is located to the corresponding point in the other Window so only using the keyboard doesn't make much sense to me.

Good Luck,
