Configure TexnicCenter with GhostScript

Postby JohnBoyDoe » Thu Feb 01, 2007 6:14 pm


i just got the tip to use ghostscript/ghostview instead of adobe acrobat, because ghostview will jump to the last viewed page.

So i got me ghostscript ( the GNU Version and installed it. Now i started to configure texniccenter to use ghostview via "define output profiles" in the Build Menu.

And here is what i "configured":

LaTex ->pdf


Path of executebales

View project´s output
Command Line Argument
Command: "%bm.pdf"

Forward Search
Command Line Argument
Command: "%bm.pdf"

Close document befoer running (la)TeX
DDE command
cmommand: [DocClose("%bm.pdf")]

Server: Topic: System

But it doesn´work out to good

Every time i compile the document another Ghostviews pops up and i start from the beginning.

What is wrong with my settings?

I´m an beginner in LaTex. So if there is a more common way to do it the "right" way don´t hesitate to give me a hint.

Thanks for Help.

p.s. i´m german thats why my writing might be "unprecise"

What about installing and calling GhostView (the actual viewer for GhostScript)
with the following setup:

View document: "" (line command)
Search document: "" (line command)
before compilation: not closing

thank you. I was a bit confused of all the "ghosts".

Ghostview works fine now.
