TexMaker and SyncTex on included files

Postby raffamaiden » Sat Nov 25, 2017 12:12 am

I was using TexStudio, but wanted to switch to TexMaker because the former is too slow

The problem I have is this. I have a dissertation composed by a main file (main.tex) and several other files which are included by the main file

When I open the file main, its structure shows on the left, with the included files having some sort of floppy disks

I then click on the included file on the left (on the floppy disks) and if I click two times the correct files open.

But now, when I right click on the text and select "Jump to pdf" (of course main.tex was compiled) an error box is showed in the pdf viewer: "file not found"

Let's say that the included file is called inc1.tex, I think TexMaker tries to open inc1.pdf instead of main.pdf (but that's only speculation)

Can you help me?

I don't know your priblem or a solution to it. I just want to note thar the editor does not have an influebce on compilation time.
The smart way: Calm down and take a deep breath, read posts and provided links attentively, try to understand and ask if necessary.

It has, because texstudio tries to guess the correct compilation passages by looking at the log files, and it is very slow inthat

Welcome to the forum!

I never saw this problem. Perhaps send a bug report to the maintainer of the editor?
