The following solution does not (anymore) use ImageMagick's convert command as this would always create raster images, which will stand out from the text. Instead, it uses Ghostscript to vectorise the letters so that they appear like normal text but are in fact an uncopyable image. Note that you also have to run pdflatex with the --shell-escape switch ...

You can redefine the bibmacro doi+eprint+url so that the doi field is printed only if the url field is not defined, that is, add the following lines in the preamble: \renewbibmacro*{doi+eprint+url}{% \iftoggle{bbx:doi} {\iffieldundef{url}{\printfield{doi}}{}} {}% \newunit\newblock \iftoggle{bbx:eprint} {\usebibmacro{eprint}} {}% ...

Just type the URL: \documentclass{article} \usepackage{url} \begin{document} \url{http://foo.bar/orders{orderID}} \end{document} With hyperref it's the same, but the result is an invalid URL, I guess.

12

The most straightforward and flexible approach to typesetting URL strings is to use the \url macro that's provided by the url and hyperref packages. I use the word "flexible" in part because \url{...} can usually find good line breaks -- an important consideration when dealing with long URL strings (which occur quite frequently, right?). Outside of ...

There is a command \path{/usr/share/myspell/dicts/hyph_pl_PL.dic} you can use to write paths like that. That command is defined in the package url so you have to use \usepackage{url} in the preamble of the document.

The syntax of \hyperref with the optional argument is: \hyperref[<label name>]{<text>} I assume, you do not have \label{This is a link to Google}. Then the text "http://www.google.com" appears without link to a non-existing label. I think you want somethink like: \href{https://www.google.com/}{This is a link to Google.} Then the text "This ...

A macro definition is not executed at the point of definition, you can go \newcommand\foo{\any old \rubbish } and as long as {} match up \foo is defined. You may get an error later if you try to use \foo, but you get no error at this point, and if \any and \rubbish are defined by the time you use \foo there is no error. Conversely a box is typeset as it ...

You can do this via mapping of datasources. The \DeclareSourcemap command \DeclareSourcemap{ \maps[datatype=bibtex]{ \map{ \step[fieldsource=url,final] \step[fieldset=doi,null] } } } processes any bibtex input data and for each item in the bibliograhpy file it executes a number of commands given by \step: the first step ...

From the hyperref documentation (section 4 Additional user macros): If you need to make references to URLs, or write explicit links, the following low-level user macros are provided: \href[options]{URL}{text} The text is made a hyperlink to the URL; this must be a full URL (relative to the base URL, if that is defined). The special characters # ...

This works for me, but I don't know about your OS, so I'm not sure if it will work for you. Note that the command convert is part of ImageMagick. Compile with -shell-escape enabled. \documentclass[12pt]{article} \usepackage[T1]{fontenc} \usepackage{bashful,graphicx} \begin{document} \bash echo "jon@jon.com" | convert label:@- email.png \END ...

TeX assigns category code when an argument is grabbed and tokenized. As a result, inside your definition of \url, & has catcode 'tab alignment' (assuming normal rules apply). You can only \def an active char, so this step fails as you've observed. What you need to do is make sure that the definition of \url contains an active &: \begingroup ...

It is much better not to change catcodes mid document but instead change the mathcode (as then it works as much as possibe even in macro arguments) this is what url.sty does url.sty uses hardly any latex so works with plain tex with a bit of encouragement, or you could simply edit the file to remove the latex bits rather than defining stubs as here ...

Use eplain: \input eplain \beginpackages \usepackage{url} \endpackages \rightskip=10em minus 8em % avoid overfull box \url{http://tex.stackexchange.com/some/long/path/and?someBizarreLong=param&andYetAnotherSuchBizarreLong=param} \bye Your (simplistic) definition can be corrected with \begingroup \catcode`\&=\active % we want an active & ...

You should change the anything to do with the bibliography immediately before the bibliography, otherwise it would affect everything following the preamble as in your case. \documentclass[11pt,a4paper]{moderncv} % moderncv themes \moderncvtheme[blue]{classic} % character encoding \usepackage[utf8]{inputenc} \usepackage{bbding} % ...

It's your PDF viewer's fault: Mac OS X Preview (at least v7.0) recognises URLs and makes them clickable, whether they be typeset with a special package (hyperref, url) or not. To convince yourself, try compiling the following example and open the output in Preview; the URL will be clickable. So there's really nothing you can do about it on the author's ...

With hyperref, for fun (egreg was tooooo fast with url ;)...) \documentclass{article} \usepackage{hyperref} \begin{document} \href{http://foo.bar/orders{orderID}}{\texttt{http://foo.bar/orders\{orderID\}}} \end{document}

\documentclass{article} \usepackage{url} \begin{document} \edef\URL{http://example.org/abc?param=\string}} \expandafter\url\expandafter{\URL} \end{document}

\documentclass{article} \usepackage{hyperref} \newcommand\rurl[1]{\xurl#1\empty\empty\empty\empty\empty\xurl} \def\xurl#1#2#3#4#5#6\xurl{% \def\tmp{#1#2#3#4#5}% \href{\ifx\tmp\xurlhttp \else http://\fi#1#2#3#4#5#6}% {\nolinkurl{#1#2#3#4#5#6}}% } \def\xurlhttp{http:} \begin{document} \rurl{ipython.org}\\ \rurl{http://ipython.org} \end{document}

EDIT: Added Title clickable (1. just the title cickable and 2. the whole reference clickable) 1. Just the Title reference clickable You can redefine the title macro and add the \href to the title using the DeclareFieldFormat. I edited the default definitions in the biblatex.def file. \DeclareFieldFormat{title}{\myhref{\mkbibemph{#1}}} \DeclareFieldFormat ...

csplain is (by default) sensitive to non UTF-8 codes in input. It uses encTeX for this in pdftex engine. The url.sty manipulates with non UTF-8 codes, encTeX is sensive to this more than we need and this yields this error. You can write \input utf8off at beginning of the document. After this, the pdftex treats its input normally as 8bit. If you are using ...

The \url command can be redefined the same way as hyperref. The following example first defines url command \guilurl, which uses single guillemots as angle brackets. Then \url is redefined using \guilurl: \documentclass{article} \usepackage[T1]{fontenc}% \guilsinglleft and \guilsinglright \usepackage{lmodern} \usepackage{amstext} \usepackage{hyperref} ...

I think you are trying to print the paths. If so, you may need this: \documentclass{article} \usepackage[obeyspaces]{url} \begin{document} \path{\\server\folder\folder} \path{\\server\my folder\folder} \end{document}

5

\UrlLeft and \UrlRight can be used for the purpose of adding angle brackets, see section "6 Yet more flexibility" url's documentation. Example: \documentclass{article} \usepackage{url} \DeclareUrlCommand\url{% \def\UrlLeft{\langle}% \def\UrlRight{\rangle}% } \begin{document} \url{http://www.example.org/} \end{document} Remarks: \langle and ...

pgfmath loads pgfplain-util.def that wants to emulate xcolor, without really being able to do it if the whole PGF isn't loaded. You can adapt my solution at Can \usepackage{color} and \input tikz work together in Plain TeX/eplain? by giving control of color back to the color package. \input eplain \beginpackages \usepackage{url} \usepackage{color} ...

The cause of the problem is the % character -- which has a "special" meaning in TeX -- in the field url = {http://www.micro.feld.cvut.cz/home/X34SES/prednasky/08%20Akcelerometry.pdf}, "Escaping" the % symbol, i.e., writing it as \%, might at first blush seem to provide a fix. However, it introduces a new problem: A backslash character is now printed in ...

How about ps. I do not think it is a good idea to post such a long url in the document. Use a small name and use that for the link. But if this is what you want: \documentclass[10pt,letterpaper]{article} \usepackage{hyperref} \usepackage{longtable} ...

If the urls are typeset with the url package, then you can load it as \usepackage[hyphens]{url} to allow breaks at hyphens. This is not the default, since these breaks can be confusing for the reader who doesn't know if the hyphen is actually part of the url or not. (With strings like implementing-operators-for-your-class.html that shouldn't be a ...

Package hypgotoe add support for embedded go-to actions (GoToE) to \href. This action type only works from and to PDF files. The package only supports destination names as link targets. For example they can be set via \hypertarget or extracted by package zref-xr or xr-hyper. More arbitrary bookmarks can be generated via package bookmark. Currently it does ...

Without hyperref no hyperlink is created by LaTeX; however, PDF previewers on Mac OS X have heuristics that try finding URL's (or, more generally, URI's) in the PDF files. Such heuristics often try being too smart and fail. :-( So it's not a LaTeX problem, but of the Apple library PDF viewers are based on (Preview, Skim and others). Since Adobe Reader is ...
