  • In the TOC, the hyperlinks are pointing correctly to the pdf document included with pdfpages
  • But, in the lists of tables / figures, the hyperlinks are pointing wrongly to the cover page of my document (a book), instead of pointing to the included pdf document.
  • I compile in pdflatex

Does anybody know how to fix that problem ?

     % addtotoc={⟨page number⟩,⟨section⟩, ⟨level⟩,⟨heading⟩,⟨label⟩}
     addtolist={1,figure,heading-tof,label-tof}  % addtolist={⟨page number⟩,⟨type⟩,⟨heading⟩,⟨label⟩}

    \includepdfmerge[nup=1x3,scale=0.9,column=true,frame=true,angle=90,delta=0 0,offset= 0 0,pagecommand={\thispagestyle{fancy}},
                   {file1.pdf, file2.pdf, file3.pdf}

Please add a minimal working example (MWE) that illustrates your problem. It will be much easier for us to reproduce your situation and find out what the issue is when we see compilable code, starting with \documentclass{...} and ending with \end{document}. – egreg Dec 22 '12 at 11:40
In fact, if I have a simple document, everything is working fine. My main LATEX document has lots of packages / macros / included pdf documents, hence is not slim enough to be put on the website. – SDrolet Dec 23 '12 at 2:37
I suspect that something is blocking the hyperlinks from going backwards from the Tables of tables / figures to the targeted tables / figures. At first, I had the same problem with the Table of contents --> I put systematically a \cleardoublepage\newpage before each part / chapter / section --> it cleared the way for the hyperlinks of the Table of contents to go forward precisely. Would there be something to do to clear the way "backwards" ? – SDrolet Dec 23 '12 at 2:45
- The problems with the Table of contents were caused by an error in the number of arguments of one macro containing an \includepdf --> that is why the \cleardoublepage/newpage stopped the error from propagating throughout the document. – SDrolet Dec 23 '12 at 14:48
- The links in the TOF are working fine for \begin{figure}\includegraphics... but not for \includepdf for which the links go to the very first page of the document ... Strange behavior – SDrolet Dec 23 '12 at 14:53

The packages "float" and "rotfloat" were blocking the proper functioning of the hyperlinks --> taking them out solved the problem.
