Are you talking about the line endings in the .tex file, or about the
line endings in the .synctex file? I was referring to the latter, which
normally should get created automatically and you don't have to touch it.

There is a difference between "Go to..." (items in the Window menu,
shortcut Ctrl+'), and "Jump to..." (the items in the context menu you
get when you right-click). The former have no notion of position, and
indeed just switch the focus between the two windows. The latter do know
where you are (because you right-clicked there), so they take you to the
corresponding place in the other window. It's really the same as
Ctrl+clicking, just without any keyboard key ;).
