# Is it possible to create a hyperlink with any name and linking to any place?

Is it possible to create hyperlinks in LaTeX that will show up as arbitrarily defined strings in the output (PDF/DVI)?

For example, something like to appear in the output file:

Text text text text text text text text text text.

Here, would direct the reader to a position in the document that would be chosen arbitrarily by the user, e.g. to the end of the 45th paragragh.

I think you're looking for the hypertarget and hyperlink commands from the hyperref pacakge.

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage{lipsum}
\usepackage{hyperref}

\begin{document}

In the beginning \hyperlink{linkanchorname}{Text text text text text text text text text text.}

\lipsum
\lipsum
\lipsum
\lipsum
\lipsum


Or \hyperref[<label>]{text} and \phantomsection\label{<label>}. – Werner Sep 1 '12 at 17:01
