>> 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.

The behavior in question is only in TeXnicle; and I suspect you are correct.
