Hi Themis,

It used to be that after a fresh typeset, hitting the "Previous Page" button would always take you the first page of the document. I use this to jump to the table of contents when I work with books. In recent versions however the behavior is different. Sometimes , usually early in a fresh TS session, this works as before. However, after multiple typesets, especially when I work on the same page for a while, it takes multiple clicks of "Previous Page" to go to the front of the document, and as many (I haven't really counted :) to return to the page I was working on. It is as if TS adds the current page multiple times its buffer for the Next/Previous buttons. Anyway, Iike the old way because it is a quick way to get to the table of contents and navigate a large document.

Do you include the hyperref package and generate Bookmarks for your document?
Then open the side panel in the TS Preview, and use these to get to any of your chapters and sections.

If you don’t get a bookmark automatically for the “Table of Contents”
then I can show you how to get one, using some quite simple LaTeX commands.

I am on TS 4.44.


Hope this helps.
