#620 "Go to source" functionality of internal PDF viewer is unavailable for texstudio 2.5 build 3370M


"Go to source" functionality of internal PDF viewer doesn't work for texstudio 2.5 build 3370M
Also "Scrolling follows cursor" and "Cursor follows scrollig" functionalities!

    Works here. Please check the following:
    - Does the reverse (Go to PDF from source) work.
    - Does the file path contain special characters or spaces? (Synctex was reported to sometimes have problems with these)
    - Is the .synctex.gz file generated when compiling?

      The problem is caused by chinese-charators in the file path.

    I use TXS SVN 3418. If I work with a project and the main file is opened only, then the "Go to source" functionality of the PDF viewer doesn't work. In SVN 3370 it was perfect.

    I'm not aware of any changes to the syncing between 3370 and 3418. Also the original poster says, he had the issue already in 3370. I suspect that it is something different. Could you please answer the above questions?

    What OS and TeX distribution are you using? There were some issues reported with MikTeX (see https://sourceforge.net/p/texstudio/bugs/607/)

    Hm. Could you provide a minimal example file?

    Sorry, sorry, sorry !!!!!

    I try it again, and now Synctex works fine. Perhaps previously the Windows restrained the synctex.gz file or some other file(s). (But why??)

    @tomacs: can't tell why without an example to test. Anyway, as long as it works now, it does not matter. Keep us informed in case you encounter the problem again.
