  2. Anybody can answer
  3. The best answers are voted up and rise to the top

The following is a (fairly) minimal example:



spaceabove=6pt, spacebelow=6pt,
notefont=\itshape, notebraces={(}{)},

\declaretheorem[name=Theorem, parent=section, style=mystyle,

\declaretheorem[name=Proposition, sibling=theorem, style=mystyle,

colorlinks = true,
linkcolor = blue,
urlcolor = magenta,
citecolor = red,
pdfpagemode = UseNone,
pdfpagelayout = SinglePage,
pdfdisplaydoctitle = true,
plainpages = false}





Testing this out!

Still Testing!

\cref{prop:112} and \cref{prop:113}


The problem is that both links point to the first proposition. I also get the error

destination with the same identifier (name{prop.\\theHprop\040}) has been already used, duplicate ignored.

Does anyone know what steps I need to take to resolve this problem (I thought I had already done enough!). Perhaps it is pertinent, but I also get the error

Package thmtools warning: Your version of cleveref is too old!

but I just updated both packages!

Thanks for formatting! – Steve D Sep 30 '10 at 4:36
Do you actually need cleverref? I mean, does hyperref's autoref not work for you? – Seamus Sep 30 '10 at 10:39
you might have to do something like \newcommand{\propositionautorefname}{proposition} to make it work (I can't remember exactly how hyperref's autoref works... – Seamus Sep 30 '10 at 13:00

Your example works properly for me. (No log file messages from thmtools). Package versions

hyperref.sty    2010/09/13 v6.81n Hypertext links for LaTeX
cleveref.sty    2010/09/04 v0.17.4 Intelligent cross-referencing
thmtools.sty    2010/08/09 v50

the links both link to the appropriate proposition? – Steve D Sep 30 '10 at 5:17
@Steve D: Yes, see drop.io/6tlpvro – Lev Bishop Sep 30 '10 at 6:04
@Lev Bishop: OK, I am no longer getting the thmtools warning. But I am still getting the duplicate warning, and the links are still not working. I am relatively new at this. Do you know what could be wrong? – Steve D Sep 30 '10 at 6:24
Maybe a very silly thing. But have you tried removing all .aux files before compiling again? – Juan A. Navarro Sep 30 '10 at 12:16
@Juan: Thanks for the suggestion, I tried that, still getting the duplicate error. Is there a way I can get version numbers, etc., for all the packages I'm using, if that would be helpful? – Steve D Oct 1 '10 at 1:19
