Specifically, I want to sync an Rnoweb (Rnw) source with a PDF opened in either Skim or Evince using polymode. Note that I have no problem weaving or exporting Rnw files and viewing PDFs with Skim. Thanks.

  • I don't think so. SyncTex links the (La)TeX source with the PDF output. Compiling an Rnw file to PDF requires an intermediate .tex file, and I don't think SyncTex can manage the links between Rnw <-> Tex <-> PDF. – Tyler Jul 5 '16 at 21:48
  • Thanks for your answer @Tyler. Currently there are a few editors that support SynTeX between Rnw and PDF. To name a few, RStudio, TeXShop, and TeXmaker. I am wondering if there is a similar way to set up SynTeX for polymode. – Knightgu Jul 6 '16 at 20:01
  • So it's not impossible! I don't know if it's available yet for Emacs, hopefully someone else will know. – Tyler Jul 7 '16 at 0:23
