Arrange to pass the argument "-synctex=1" to the actual *tex  
invocation, so that the engine creates a .synctex.gz file alongside  
the .pdf output; this enables texworks to jump back and forth between  
source and preview locations.

I doubt the context script does this automatically, but there may be a  
switch for it, or else a way to specify arbitrary extra arguments to  
be passed on to the tex engine.
