Referring to this post my output first doesn't look similiar and I also can't click on the elements. I've used the exact same code there. Has anyone an idea why this happens? His first example:

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage{hyperref}% http://ctan.org/pkg/hyperref
\begin{document}
\begin{Form}
\def\DefaultWidthofChoiceMenu{12pt}%
\ChoiceMenu[name=optionA,radio]{}{Option1,Option2,Option3}

\medskip

\ChoiceMenu[name=optionB,radio,radiosymbol=]{}{Option1,Option2,Option3}

\medskip

\ChoiceMenu[name=optionC,radio,radiosymbol=\ding{108}]{}{Option1,Option2,Option3}

\medskip

\ChoiceMenu[name=optionD,radio,radiosymbol=\ding{109}]{}{Option1,Option2,Option3}

\medskip

\ChoiceMenu[name=optionE,radio,radiosymbol=\ding{96}]{}{Option1,Option2,Option3}
\end{Form}
\end{document}

His output:

My output:

His second example does lead to another issue: Radio's should be grouped by name, this seems not to happen on me:

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage{hyperref}% http://ctan.org/pkg/hyperref
\begin{document}
\begin{Form}
\def\DefaultWidthofChoiceMenu{12pt}%
\ChoiceMenu[name=optionA,radio]{\mbox{}}\null Option1
\ChoiceMenu[name=optionA,radio]{\mbox{}}\null Option2
\ChoiceMenu[name=optionA,radio]{\mbox{}}\null Option3

\medskip

\ChoiceMenu[name=optionB,radio,radiosymbol=]{\mbox{}}\null Option1
\ChoiceMenu[name=optionB,radio,radiosymbol=]{\mbox{}}\null Option2
\ChoiceMenu[name=optionB,radio,radiosymbol=]{\mbox{}}\null Option3

\medskip

\ChoiceMenu[name=optionC,radio,radiosymbol=\ding{108}]{\mbox{}}\null Option1
\ChoiceMenu[name=optionC,radio,radiosymbol=\ding{108}]{\mbox{}}\null Option2
\ChoiceMenu[name=optionC,radio,radiosymbol=\ding{108}]{\mbox{}}\null Option3

\medskip

\ChoiceMenu[name=optionD,radio,radiosymbol=\ding{109}]{\mbox{}}\null Option1
\ChoiceMenu[name=optionD,radio,radiosymbol=\ding{109}]{\mbox{}}\null Option2
\ChoiceMenu[name=optionD,radio,radiosymbol=\ding{109}]{\mbox{}}\null Option3

\medskip

\ChoiceMenu[name=optionE,radio,radiosymbol=\ding{96}]{\mbox{}}\null Option1
\ChoiceMenu[name=optionE,radio,radiosymbol=\ding{96}]{\mbox{}}\null Option2
\ChoiceMenu[name=optionE,radio,radiosymbol=\ding{96}]{\mbox{}}\null Option3
\end{Form}
\end{document}

I have no idea where that issue comes from and how to fix it.

  • I can't confirm your issue (Linux x64, Texlive 2014, hyperref version [2012/11/06 v6.83m), the output is exactly as 'his version'. Sorry, but we need more information – user31729 Aug 6 '14 at 21:02
  • I can confirm your issue (Fedora 19 x64, TeXLive 2014, hyperref v6.83m) using pdflatex. If I used xelatex the giant open quotes disappear but there are still no radio boxes for the second and third options. I've tried viewing the pdf with okular and evince but the result's the same. I sent a copy of the pdf to my son and it viewed correctly on Adobe Reader running on his Windows laptop. I don't know what's causing it. – Nicola Talbot Oct 14 '14 at 16:48
  • I can confirm this issue, too (Ubuntu 14.04 64bit, TeXLive 2013, 2012/11/06 v6.83m, pdflatex). The ancient Adobe Reader 9.5.5 for Linux shows it correctly, Okular and Evince do not. – Philipp Wendler Jan 30 '15 at 10:52
  • This seems to be a duplicate of tex.stackexchange.com/q/20179/16684 – Philipp Wendler Jan 30 '15 at 10:59
  • This seems to be a bug in hyperref github.com/ho-tex/hyperref/issues/3 – notautogenerated Jul 28 '18 at 10:58
