[OS X TeX] Goto Error (TS 4.23)

Hello all,

I confirmed Themis’s observation: Goto Error does not always work.

First test: I removed the closing brace from a footnote and Goto Error did not do anything when I clicked on it.

Second test: I removed the closing brace from a \cite command and this time Goto Error sent me to the line just below the missing brace.

Third test: I added an extra closing brace to the same \cite command and Goto Error sent me to the precise spot of the extra brace.

So it’s hit and miss. As it happens, I hardly ever use Goto Error, so I hadn’t noticed the issue.

With some errors (usually typos in latex commands), clicking the Goto Error button does nothing, neither when the console stops at the error, nor after the end of typesetting. This does not happen with all errors but with some it happens consistently.
