Is there a way to add a hyperlink to a reference from a bibliography (bib/bbl) in an image (created using IPE)?

I want to create an image with text that when clicked directs to a reference in the bibliography in the document.

  • What is IPE? And have you tried putting \label or some hyperref command in a .bib entry and then \ref-ing or \hyperref-ing it? – jon Mar 28 '16 at 6:01
  • Place bibliographic information under the picture or within the caption. – Johannes_B Mar 28 '16 at 6:10
  • @Johannes_B -- I agree that is what should (normally) be done, but I don't think it is an answer to the second sentence in the question. – jon Mar 28 '16 at 6:12
  • @jon You already mentioned hyperref. – Johannes_B Mar 28 '16 at 6:15
  • @Johannes_B -- Oh, I see. My mistake. – jon Mar 28 '16 at 6:17

From http://comments.gmane.org/gmane.comp.graphics.ipe.general/1113

You can use the \psfrag commands to do what you want. Create the figure and put placeholders for the \ref or \cite commands you want (eg, cite1, ref1 etc) in IPE. Then in your latex document when including the figure you can replace the instances of cite1, ref1 etc using psfrag with whatever latex command you choose.

When you create the IPE figure, just put in \cite{}, \ref{}, the same way as you do in the LaTeX file.

After finishing your LaTeX main file, open main.aux, copy \newlabel{sec:section}{II} or \bibcite{article}{1} to the Edit->Document properties->Latex preambles. Run LaTeX again for IPE, then it works.
