The cursor sync never did work properly for me. For a long time there was an issue with the code section of split view jumping around erratically, which I suspect the developers couldn't fix so they gave up on it and in the process stopped trying to get the cursor sync to work, and ditched the split view.
BTW what is all that stuff that appears when you click the split view button?
