I'm using xsavebox package for saving and using named boxes (I want the boxes to have names like X.1.3) and I want to make links to these boxes but they are not compatible with any kind of referencing. Any ideas?



Using it gives an error:

pdfTeX error (ext4): link annotations cannot be inside an XForm.
  • as the error says: links can't be inside an xform. So no it won't work. May 10 at 20:13
