Using pdftex i can cross ref to a label say \ref{label1} for example. Clickin on it in the .pdf document you 'll be linked to the label. I'd like there to be a "back reference link" to the point that called \ref{label1}. Is this possible without adding another label to that point? Thank you.

  • Please help us to help you and add a minimal working example (MWE) that illustrates your problem. It will be much easier for us to reproduce your situation and find out what the issue is when we see compilable code, starting with \documentclass{...} and ending with \end{document}. – user31729 Dec 28 '14 at 20:53
  • Your question has nothing to to with MikTeX itself – user31729 Dec 28 '14 at 20:54
  • Example: \documentclass[a4paper,10pt]{article} \usepackage[pdftex,breaklinks,colorlinks, citecolor=blue, urlcolor=blue, pdftitle={}, pdfauthor={Sotirios Chasapis}, pdfsubject={}]{hyperref} \begin{document} \section{example1} This is a link to \ref{sec:label2} \section{example2} THis is section 2. \label{sec:label2} In the pdf document when somebody clicks on ref link being in section 1 comes here. I'd like here to be a link back to that ref point. \end{document} – Sot Mathematician Dec 28 '14 at 20:55

    I think it has already been discussed: what if you use \ref{label1} twice in your document? Where would the link point? Better using the “Go back” feature of your PDF viewer. – egreg Dec 28 '14 at 21:03
  • I think this should be true \hypertarget... and \hyperlink, but the ambiguity remains, as egreg already stated – user31729 Dec 28 '14 at 21:04
