# [OS X TeX] hyperref package in thesis

Thanks for your suggestions. However, I haven't resolved the issue.
>  \hypertarget  and  \hyperlink  didn't work
and neither did
>
> \ref (to link to a \label)

Here attached are the necessary files and the .pdf generated.  (Please keep identifiable details private - but I cannot figure out how to send you .cls without the logo bit.)  I cannot figure out how to send you the necessary information for compiling without sending the files (!)

I used the 'abstract' definition to define my terms and I want to refer back to that page from other parts of the document.
Using the \href, the labelled words are red and look like real links.  I would like to achieve this effect - where labelled words defined are always linked back to the definition.

I not an expect with Latex - I try to find a template of someones and adopt for my own use.

Any help would be sincerely appreciated

thanks

Bridget

AFter clicking that maneuver to the directory with the Quoted_.plist file and double click on it to load it into the Macro Editor's Menu list. You can then shift it around in the list and Save it. I've got tieems like that for several things like that; e.g., ", ^ and {, which are normally bound to other things on my keyboard.

If you have multi-character sub/super-scripts often it will be two keystrokes (either {->{#INS} and another to go past the } -- or -- { and } if you don't have that keybinding). On the other hand if you usually have just one character, e.g., x^2 or x_i, you are right. I've messed that up way too often so having ^->^{#INS}, etc., doesn't bother me.
