# Hypersetup to underline only cite texts

Is there a way to only box my cite or underline only my cite?

I dont want to change the font color of my cite or anything. Is there a way to do that with hypersetup? In the image below, I just want the cite text to be underlined or boxed with a color. How to do it?

• What do you mean by 'only'? Loading hyperref without any options like colorlinks (and related) will make citations appear in a coloured box --- but so will things like \ref and \pageref and figures. Do you want to disable hyperlinking for those last three? – jon Mar 30 '13 at 20:47

\usepackage{hyperref}

linkbordercolor=red, hyperlink borders will be red
pdfborderstyle={/S/U/W 1} border style will be underline of width 1pt
