Sorry, I didn't answer right away, but I've been kept busy...
Anyways, I tried both TeXShop and iTeXMac. With iTeXMac I tried both  
version 1.4 and beta 6. But no dice with any of them. Either I'm  
being thick here, or synchronization doesn't really work with  
external editors in TeXShop nor iTeXMac, at least with TextMate.

With TeXShop nothing happens at all, when command-clicking anywhere  
with external editor enabled. With external editor disabled,  
everything works flawlessly. I think TeXShop's implementation of the  
use of external editors is to be just able to use it as a compiler  
aid and automatic reload which probably is enough for most people  
considering that Acrobat Reader doesn't offer neither.

With iTeXMac 1.4 I'm taken to the right chapter, but nowhere near I  
clicked in the preview pane. Again, with external editor disabled,  
everything works just fine.

With iTeXMac 2 preview 6 I had some difficulty figuring out how it  
actually works and gave up in the end. I can create projects and  
typeset and all, but whenever I try to have a look at the preview,  
all I get is preview's settings pane.

So, thanks for the tip, but I haven't been able to make it work.

Bye, Thomas
