Hyperlinks generated with \ref{note} link to the beginning of the pagenote section rather than to the actual note, the way a \ref to a \footnote works. The hyperlink generated by \pagenote itself works fine. Is that a known problem? Is there a workaround?




Hyperlink to \ref{note3} goes to beginning of notes section instead of to note \ref{note3}.





EDIT: Someone posted this answer but it's now gone, so I'll record it here: the workaround is to insert \phantomsection before the \label command.

  • I'll come back to this later on -- with \notebackref in the preamble, the \pagenote generates labels automatically such as pagenote1-1 etc, but it is difficult to remember this

It seems to be a memoir error. Try the following in the preamble.


I added the \phantomsection


You need another counter to use \refstepcounter INSIDE the note. Interestingly, \thepagenote is 0 for all the notes.




\newcommand{\notelink}[1]% #1=label


Hyperlink to \ref{note3} goes to beginning of the third note.
