Is there a way to use forward/inverse search without a synctex file?
I would like to synchronize annotations in a 2nd program to SumatraPDF.
What I would like to get is document and page number from SumatraPDF, basically a very simple inverse search without translating to a location in a .tex file.
I have created a program to collect the arguments and set up the inverse search according to these instructions https://tex.stackexchange.com/questions/116981/how-to-configure-texniccenter-2-0-with-sumatra-2013-2016-version , but without a synctex file, nothing happens.
Is there a way around this and send the location in the pdf to another program?
