Baffled Hyperref

Sometimes hyperref links don’t work the way they should and point to wrong pages. Here is one solution:

  • Make sure every page has a unique number (like 1, 2, 3, … a, b, c, …. i, ii, iii, …. ). The page numbers may be hidden (e.g. on the title page, or before a new chapter). Common tools are:

  • Import the hyperref package as late as possible in your preample:

  • You can use the \phantomsection command, if you hide section with a star (like: section*{title})

I used this somewhat weird setup as i had some ..er.. latex-riddles in my appendix. I couldn’t get section enumeration, page numbering, minitoc and all the lists right at the same time … this finally solved my last riddle.
