I know I can use hyperref to link to named destination or an specific physical-page withing the PDF file.

Is it possible to link to a bookmark or to an specific logical-page?

1 Answer 1


(a) It is not possible to "link" to a bookmark.

(b) Option pageanchor sets page anchors (enabled by default). If options hypertexnames (true) and plainpages (false) are not changed, then the name of the anchor is page.\thepage. This anchor is also used by \hyperpage, e.g. \hyperpage{iii} for the page with page number iii. The anchor name is page.iii.

  • @HeihoOberdiek is it possible to extend hyperref to link to a Bookmark or there are technical impediments to it?

  • @PauloNey If the bookmark is a link to somewhere, you can create a link that jumps to the same target, but a bookmark cannot be a link target. May 4, 2018 at 17:02
