DVI Viewer on Mac OS X

Postby Mini » Sat Nov 12, 2011 2:13 pm

What DVI viewers do people use for this on Mac OS X? Currently it's opening the one from TexShop, which doesn't support SyncTeX...

The SyncTeX technology is only supported by PDF viewers. Thus you will never find a DVI viewer which supports it. Neither on Mac OS X nor on any other operating system.

Okay, thanks for your reply.

But then, how could I make Texmaker use SyncTex work for the pdf output from dvi -> pdf (which I need to do because I use pstricks)? It only seems to work from the PDFLatex option, which is really frustrating.

Alternatively, is there any method I could go from the source to the DVI output? I recall there was an option for this in Winedit...

Thanks again
