Re: Acrobat Reader forgets everything

Ok, without having done anything more, now it works, almost.

I am writting a paper and to keep things nice and tidy, I am using commands like

which appears in my MyPaper.tex
the introduction.tex of course lies in ./main/ , and its content is being shown within the pdf. but when the last change was done within this introduction.tex, pressing F5 executes SumatraPDF, but Sumatra announces in an upper left box:

Unknown source file (introduction.tex)

Has anyone a solution for that?

Here is a great solution which worked for me using Acrobat Reader, I found this at:

In short, for Acrobat 8, make sure that in Edit -> Preferences -> Document, that:
A. "Show each document in its own window" is DISABLED (requires restart) AND
B. "Restore last view settings when reopening documents" is ENABLED.

Good luck,
