Hi Zbigniew,

First, when I have just typeset/compiled the pdf (and not done anything with it yet) I can, as I used to, click on the hyperlinked reference, and I jump to the appropriate page.  Once I have done that (just once) what I get the next time I try to click on a link is precisely what your screenshot shows.  The tool is elusive, but even if I do catch it, I can no longer automatically jump to the appropriate new page.  I tried this yet again (that is, I re-typeset the test file)
and again,I could go to page 2 and then click on one of the items on page 1 which are linked, and (even without seeing a preview box) the view jumps to page 1.  Once that has happened, though, it never happens again.  Every subsequent time if I either click or hover over the linked item, I get the preview box, and (I think in either case, but certainly if I click on a link) I get what you are calling the tool-popup, but I am unable to jump to the appropriate page.

Yes, I understood you to be saying this earlier; nevertheless it is good to be able to eliminate other possibilities.
It is a very strange behaviour.
Do you get any changed behaviour if you use the little “back view” arrows to return to page 1 or page 2,
after using the PDF’s hyper-links? That is, the left-facing black triangle in this image:

What I find strange is that I DO get the desired behavior on first try, but (absolutely consistently) not again, unless I re-typeset, in which case I get my first chance to jump, but never again until the next re-typeset.  Quitting Texshop and coming back to it also doesn’t help.

Can you send a 2-page document, as a PDF.
I don’t believe that there’s anything wrong within the PDF, and it’s somehow all just on your own system.
But as usual, let’s eliminate the PDF itself as a possibility.
