Mosè, exactly which version of TeXStudio has the feature to direct you to the 
exact word?

I'll like to see that. AFAIK pdfsync only looks at line numbers, thus TeXMaker 
and TeXStudio usually have a problem in the backwards sync because they tend to 
use soft line breaks (I think) and not the hard ones Emacs uses. Thus Emacs is 
usually much more precise. So if TeXStudio have upped the ante, I'd like to see

It looks very promising, thanks!

Well, we only need an appropriate entry in
`TeX-view-program-list-builtin' then ;-)

When using forward/backward search in TeXstudio with its embedded
viewer, you are direct to the exact word selected, not just the line.
I wonder if it's possible to implement such a feature also for AUCTeX
and pdf-tools.
