    Hello,
    I know it's the old story... Forward and Inverse serach. I just started to
    work with \include{}.
    I've noticed that forward search does not work to dvi, when inside an included
    file.
    It does, however, work when I use pdflatex and the internal pdf viewer.
    (-synctex=1)

    Plus, I want to reask my question from the other topic. Are you planning to do
    inline preview, when external files have to be loaded? I just discovered that
    it does work inside an included file.

    Thanks for all the support.
    Cheers.

    Did you enable synctex for the plain latex command?

    Are you planning to do inline preview, when external files have to be
    loaded?
    Actually I though that it works now with included files.
    Doesn't it?

    Ok, maybe I was too imprecise... sorry.

    This is the command I use.
    latex -interaction=nonstopmode -src-specials -synctex=1 %.tex also tried
    latex -interaction=nonstopmode -src-specials -synctex=-1 %.tex

    The command to view the dvi is
    xdvi -s 6 -offset 1cm -geometry 850x1200+1200+0 -editor "/usr/bin/texmakerx
    %%f --line %%l" %.dvi -sourceposition @:%.tex

    Forward works nicely when I press "view in the main document such as:

    \documentclass{article}
    \begin{document}
    Text
    \include{chapter}
    \end{document}

    When I am, however in the file chapter.tex and hit view, it jumps to the
    beginning of the .dvi file.

    So much for the first issue.
    The second issue - it doesn't work for me.
    I am using the package{import} in my preamble, using the command

    \subimport{../../}{ADT.sty}

    and it produces the error message in /tmp/ temp file:
    ! LaTeX Error: File `ADT.sty' not found.

    Type X to quit or <RETURN> to proceed,
    or enter new name. (Default extension: sty)

    Enter file name:
    ! Emergency stop.
    <read *="">

    l.17 \subimport{../../}{ADT.sty}
    ^^M
    *** (cannot \read from terminal in nonstop modes)

    Hope that's a bit more clear.

    The command to view the dvi is
    You are using % instead of ?c:m

    xdvi -s 6 -offset 1cm -geometry 850x1200+1200+0 -editor "/usr/bin/texmakerx
    %%f --line %%l" %.dvi -sourceposition @:?c:m.tex

    The second issue - it doesn't work for me.
    I am using the package{import} in my preamble, using the command
    It's a little bit the fault of the package: it ignores the search path.
    But it should work now

    Ah, thanks for the forward command, works like a charm. :-)
    And the inline preview also works now!

    Thanks for the help!

    Am I right assuming that, if my $ $ - Formula crosses the end of a line (I use
    Hard - eol breaks)
    doesn't work work, for the same reason that the section titles (inside
    \section{}, etc.) are not
    bold if they span across lines?

    No, the highlighting overlays can only be on one line, but the preview
    could span several lines.
    It was just easier to limit it to one line (and avoids to handle nested
    previews)
