# How to avoid boldface citations with hyperref [closed]

When using the hyperref package, citations are automatically typeset as hyperlinks to the bibliography. According to the documentation, the color of these links can be set.

Is there any way to get rid of the boldface? In combination with the amsalpha bibliography style, citations appear in the text in a way too heavy font.

This question is unlikely to help any future visitors; it is only relevant to a small geographic area, a specific moment in time, or an extraordinarily narrow situation that is not generally applicable to the worldwide audience of the internet.

Can you provide a minimal working example (MWE)? hyperref does not make these bold by default, so there is something else we need to know about your document. – Andrew Swann Feb 12 '13 at 18:59

Based on your spare information I provided a minimal working example (MWE). Your issue can't be reproduced with TeX Live 2012 (updated).
