> As with Latexian, you need to highlight a piece of text in the LaTeX source or PDF and then use a hotkey. Cmd-J will switch from highlighted source text to the *first occurrence of* the corresponding text in the PDF, with a list of all occurrences showing up to the right of the PDF; Sh-Cmd-J will do the reverse from highlighted PDF text to source. You can ensure that you are taken to the exact location corresponding to your highlight by selecting enough text, but I myself prefer the switch always to go to the exact corresponding point in the source/PDF, as the case may be; I don't much see the point of giving you all of the matches in the corresponding document, especially as the default.
Hmmm... does that mean Latexian and TeXnicle don't use synctex synchronization but a simple find of highlighted text?
