I have a large document (book, article or report) for which I want to produce a beamer presentation with some explanation: e. g. how the large document is structured and which chapter should be read by which audience.

In the beamer presentation I want to refer to some chapters, sections and so on. I want to refer using the number (e. g. Chapter 1.2) AND the the actual title / name (like with the nameref package, e. g. Introduction).

I have seen that there are some older questions about this subject, e. g. this question (Does hyperref work between two files?).

Are there new approaches apart from the xr package?

    With xr-hyper, \nameref with an external label works (apart from a warning from pdftex). – egreg Dec 18 '16 at 23:55

  • @ChristianHupfer Thanks for asking. I am still working on a beamer theme :). Haven't tried it yet - I just assumed that it will work according to egreg's answer. – Dr. Manuel Kuehner Feb 3 '17 at 22:16
  • Any updates here? – Bobyandbob Dec 18 '17 at 20:45
  • @Bobyandbob No. The problem is not the first on my priority list, rather a nice to have for the future. I am sure that egreg's comment solves my question since he is very good at LaTeX. – Dr. Manuel Kuehner Dec 20 '17 at 6:35
