The command line for xelatex should have the `-synctex=1` option set to produce the necessary synctex file.

If you are using TeXShop you Cmd-Click at the location you want in either the .tex or .pdf to go the (approximate) matching location in the .pdf or .tex file respectively. The Cmd-1 shortcut just swaps between the Source and Preview window.

Good Luck,
