I am using the hyperref package with the following options:


I need to select hypertexnames=false, as otherwise links to theorems, definitions, etc., go to the wrong chapter. (I.e., a link to Theorem 1.9 might go to Theorem 8.9).

However, if I select hypertexnames=false, the links in my index go to the pdf page--and not the book page (which, due to front matter, may be more than a 10 page difference). I.e., if I select in the index "Topic X p. 312" it m

Here's a theorem:
\begin{theorem}[First Theorem]\label{one}
Something in the first theorem

As seen in \thref{one} but not in \thref{two}, \ldots

Here's another theorem:
\begin{theorem}[Second Theorem]\label{two}
Something in the second theorem

As seen in \thref{two} but not in \thref{one}, \ldots

I don't know about making an index of theorems, but the list of theorems I have there has correct page numbers and links.

Any idea why 1.1 is showing up under Chapter 2 in the TOC? Or am I missing something? –  Peter Grill Jul 3 '13 at 15:56
It's a list of theorems following the ToC. Probably should have included a header making that more obvious. –  Mike Renfro Jul 6 '13 at 20:19
I've added a more explicit title to the list of theorems now. –  Mike Renfro Jul 6 '13 at 20:41
