With you, I don’t need luck, I just need to do what you tell me:
1. Clicking on the pdf does highlight the source and that it is EXTREMELY nice not having to hunt.
2. I had forgotten that the other way, clicking on the source does not do anything. So, another dumb thing I did but, right now, I prefer to spend whatever time I have to keep on writing.
Thank you very, very much
P. S. I had seen the Theme Tab but because of a bad experience with it a long time ago and because I wasn’t absolutely sure whether “sync” was what I was talking about, I wanted guidance and reassurance.
