I am currently creating a presentation for my university with Beamer. I decided to use the Impressive script mainly because I wanted a clock counter and the fade-in-fade-out effect impressive provides when switching slides.

However, I observe that when using impressive, the header links (for section/subsection) no longer work. This is because when I click the mouse to the link, impressive intercepts the click and changes slide to next slide instead of the linked one.

Is there any possible work-around about this? I am running impressive using the command:

impressive.py -L margin=16,time=BL --fontsize 20 --transition Crossfade presentation.pdf &

  • Hyperlinks should work since Impressive version 0.10.1. However, according to the documentation, there are a few requirements, the most important probably being that you have pdftk installed. Anyway, this is really more a bug-report than a TeX-related question, so it's probably best to contact the Impressive author Martin Fiedler <martin.fiedler@gmx.net>. – diabonas Aug 30 '12 at 9:49
  • Indeed, I have read the same thing in this page. However, I already have pdftk installed. Maybe it has something to do with how I generate the PDF file? Anyway, I will follow your suggestion and mail the author (I hope he replies :-) ). Any other suggestions are fixing this are more than welcome though :) Thanks, – Y.K. Aug 30 '12 at 9:54
