In this thread (including minimal working example)
I found a solution for drawing only one circle by subsection instead of a circle per frame when using miniframes. It works very well, except one problem:
In many PDF viewers (e.g. on Windows: Foxit, SumatraPDF, Adobe Acrobat; on Linux: Evince) the circles link to the last frame of the subsection instead of linking to the first. With qpdfview for example the navigation works correctly. My PDF will be distributed, so it should work correctly in most common PDF viewers.
Does anyone have an idea what could be the reason for this behaviour and how I could solve the problem?
EDIT: As nobody seems to have a solution, does anybody know how I could simply remove the links from the navigation circles in order to avoid the problem of linking to the wrong page?
