So, I know there's already a question about this (Hyperlink in moderncv with acrobat reader) but I have tried the solutions there (updating and security settings) and it still doesn't work and I don't think that it's an Adobe problem since I have other documents (not moderncv) where the links work perfectly.

I am using Adobe Acrobat Pro XI. The links do work on Preview. Here's a MWE:



\firstname{First name}
\familyname{Last name}
\title{Curriculum Vitae}
\address{Address line 1}{Address line 2}

\AtBeginDocument{\hypersetup{colorlinks, urlcolor=NavyBlue}}


\cventry{Year}{Degree}{University}{Location}{GPA. \href{http://www.google.com}{Google}}{}

  • The link works without a problem for me (Ubuntu 12.04, Document Viewer 3.4.0). So I suppose it is an Adobe problem.

  • if it is an Adobe problem it is only when I work with moderncv and not with other type of tex documents.

    BTW, I would use rather https://www.google.com/ than http://www.google.com. Oct 6, 2014 at 10:16

On the moderncv.cls file I removed the baseurl= http:// option under hypersetup and it worked. I'm not sure why but it did.

  • But if baseurl= is set to http:// already, can't you than just leave these out in your \href commands? Or change them to https:// as Kurt says by using hypersetup in your file...
