Ok, position your cursor between the braces (){}[]  of one kind or another

(i) Menu> Edit/ Balance Delimiters


(ii)using the Crtl key tap the B key once

   sync between latex and dvi

(i) Right Mouse button and read the menu in either Tex or preview


(ii)holding the Crtl key down, click with the left mouse button in the text
or preview window where you want to sync

You will also find out many more essential and useful things, written up by
Alain Delmotte, Stefan Löffler, and others, by looking under:

There is a recent request towards helping obtain that functionality here:
