Hi Alain,

About 10 days ago, I asked the following:



While the MWE below compiles, there are two glitches whose causes I have not been able to figure out:

As can already be seen in the ToC, the sections in the Epilogue are numbered 3 and 4 instead of 1 and 2,
In the ToC, if you hover near, for instance, Numbers, you will see “Go to page 9” while the Toc indicates page 1. In other words, the number of pages in the front matter (8) is being added to the page number in the hyperlink of the main matter items. The same obtains in the ChapterTocs.

(I didn’t think I should copy the MWE.)

This is perfectly normal.
The hyperlink is using the “virtual page” of the PDF,
whereas the printed number can easily be different, due to front-matter material
using different numbering to the full document.

The pop-up is showing the name of the internal destination,
which *must be unique* within the PDF.

It is quite hard to build the PDF so that it shows a message that is different from the internal unique destination name.
Certainly this is not done as a matter of course.
I’m not saying that it is impossible, but that the value of trying this is dubious,
since it may not be understood by all PDF reader software.

But, even though it was viewed 29 times as of today, there isn’t even a single comment. I am not sure I have ever seen that happen, especially not with a fully compiling MWE.

While I would be overjoyed if someone were to point out whatever stupid mistake I made in the code, I would be quite happy just to be told what’s wrong with the question so I could edit it.

Hope this helps.
