Very good (I take it you refer to ASCII (i.e., "English") letters, not
some umlauts, dashed characters, Asian characters, or similar.

I presume it doesn't work the other way around, either (i.e.,
Ctrl+LeftClick on the editor does not take you to the corresponding
place in the PDF)?

Sorry for that. What I meant with re(loading) was indeed closing the PDF
and then opening it again (e.g., either via File > Open... or via "Go to
Preview"). With "Is there any message in the status bar" I meant the bar
at the bottom of the PDF preview (not the console output shown during
typesetting). Normally, it just displays the magnification level and the
page numbers, but immediately after loading it usually displays
information about the SyncTeX file (particularly if it was not found)
for a short time (maybe a second or so).
The reason for me asking this was to figure out if Tw finds the SyncTeX
file. If it does, there may be something wrong with the file itself, or
with the way Tw interprets it. Otherwise, it's either not created
(properly), or Tw has problems finding it.
