If you are using a modern DVI viewer, then it is possible to do what is called forward and inverse searching. However, you will need to customize the standard Latex-Suite distribution in order to utilize this functionality. Type in the following on the command line:
:let g:Tex_CompileRule_dvi = 'latex -src-specials -interaction=nonstopmode $*' :TCTarget dvi
Now recompile the latex file by pressing
This time, instead of pressing
\lv to view the
\ls from within the tex file. If the
DVI viewer supports forward searching (most of them do), then the
viewer will actually display the portion of the DVI file
corresponding to the location where you were editing the tex file.
The reason Latex-Suite does not have this setting by default is
that on some systems this causes unpredictable results in the DVI
output. If you find the DVI output satisfactory, then you can
insert the first of the 2 lines above into your
~/.vim for *nix machines.
