Sorry: Preview is the standard pdf viewer in MacOS. I don't use any keystrokes
actually: in texing options I choose "pdf mode" (that is C-c C-t C-p) then I
click on "Run Latex" in the toolbar which compiles my document, then on "Run
viewer" but it does not work. So I was wondering whether there were some
problems with the file associations for instance...
I am reading the manual, but it is of no help for the moment.
However, since I am a real newbie with Emacs, I might discover something
helpful, do I keep reading it.
