Hi I'm using a RevTex template and I would like to create a reference for a single word for instance 'molecule'. So i would like to use the reference for this word everytime I should write the word molecule. For example the phrase is:'The molecule is toxic' I tried:

The \ref{a} is toxic.

I also tried the solution here Label a word or sentence?, but it doesn't work well, I observe these problems: -It references the word but the word is in another color -It changes also the color of other references made just with '\label{} + \ref{}, so the reference of equations for example appears red or green -It changes also the dimension of my entire text This is the code:


This is an example how to reference a word 'molecule'.
So I fixed the word '\setword{molecule}{Word:molecule}' and I try to use it again\\
The \ref{Word:molecule} is toxic
As you can see in equation(\ref{eq})

As you can see in equation(\ref{eq1})


here there's my initial test:

And this is what happen when I use the suggestion Label a word or sentence?:

Is there a way how to fix it?

    "Doesn't work" isn't a helpful information. Please post a complete minimal example.

  • The colour comes from the option colorlinks passed to hyperref. Just remove it.

  • Thanks, do you have a suggestion how to solve the change of size of the font?

  • There is nothing changing the font there. You are just using an A6 paper size.

  • Sorry but I'm rookie and I started to use latex since few days. The problem is that this change is somehow related with the modification for referencing words (tex.stackexchange.com/questions/230149/label-a-word-or-sentence)
