backward sync using okular + sublime text 2 + latextoolPosted: July 25, 2013
I recently discover Sublime text 2 (ST2), and it’s definitely my favorite IDE for python and latex (at least)! Using Latextool plugin of ST2 allows to compile your latex code with pdflatex and obviously see the result into the default ubuntu pdf viewer tool : Evince. The bad thing here, is that the backward sync (from the pdf, find the corresponding part of your code) doesn’t work for me.
So I’ve decided to move to Okular to get that synchronization working again. And it work under the condition to have the correct okular configuration which is :
Settings => Configure Okular => Editor
Chose Custom text editor and add the following line :
And here we go, you have the backward synchro.
However , it remains some other minor issues to solve :
- launch okular by default after pressing CTRL+B in Sublime text
- activate the forward synchro.
