In the MWE below, created following other threads from the website, I would like to know how to change the following two things:

1) How to add the buttons which link back to the question (E.g. the button "Back to problem 1.1" in the MWE below) at the end of the solution, as I have done with the button "Solution" which comes at the end of the question.

2) The hyperlinks from the solutions back to the questions seem to be a bit off, i.e. they link back somewhere lower than the actual start of the question.

Thank you very much.

which is true because $\frac{a}{\epsilon}=b>d$ and $\epsilon>1$.

To get the "Back to..." button at the end of the solution, one has to use the tail end of the environment defnition of mySoln. However, one cannot employ #1 style parameters in the tail end, and so I save #1 as \tmpmysoln in the front end of the environment, and then use it in the tail end.

As to the other part of the question, I have no idea how to redirect the precise pointing location of a hyperlink.

With \RenewDocumentEnvironment it's possible to access the #1 parameter in the end - code of the solution environment.

  • The \phantomsection command does not seem to fix the problem with the hyperlink being a bit off. Do you know how to fix this? Apr 28, 2016 at 19:19
  • @JakeHaider: A lot of hacking of hyperlink anchors, or a \raisebox stuff. Nothing that I can do as quick setup
