I've been trying to figure out a way to make synctex work but I could not find any help anywhere else. RStudio documentation seems old in this case (https://support.rstudio.com/hc/en-us/articles/200552066-PDF-Preview-and-SyncTeX) and was not particularly helpful for my problem.
The Global Options "Always enable Rnw concordance" is marked. I tried using Evince and the Rstudio Preview, but synctex does not work in both cases. I realized that maybe this has to do with the fact that the option "Clean auxiliary output after compile" is marked, but when I tried to leave it unchecked, the files are still been deleted (I'm not using any make file or build option, just using the Knit button in the IDE).
Am I missing something important? Any suggestion?
