hyperref breaklinks problem

Postby AlexQ » Tue Dec 03, 2013 5:41 pm


I am new in the forum, I started working with LaTeX some months ago and I have found this site very useful.

Now I am writing a report and I want to have toc, lof and lot with hyperlinks. So I use the package:

  1. \usepackage[dvips,breaklinks]{hyperref}

Then I compile via \latex+dvips+ps2pdf+view pdf . When the pdf is generated the link text does not break at end line (i.e., in toc, lof and lot). I also used hypdvips package ( ) but a lot of errors appear.

  1. \usepackage{hypdvips}

Although one solution is to add linktocpage (, I want to make the text active and not only the page number.

I also tried compiling via \ latex+dvipdfm+view pdf with the option dvipdfmx in hyperref

  1. \usepackage[dvipdfmx]{hyperref}

This time the breaklinks problem is solved but the eps figures are shifted.

I am using Texmaker 4.1, MiKTeX 2.9, Ghostscript 9.10 and GSview 5.0 on Windows 7.

I would appreciate any guidance.

Thank you in advance.

Crosspost to TeX.SX - Please read, what our administrator thinks about that.

If you are a regular reader here, you should know, that it is good to post a compilable minimal working example to make a problem understandable.

One tip from my side, don't explicitly give a driver to hyperref, i.e. do not load it with option dvips, oder pdftex (or similar).
The smart way: Calm down and take a deep breath, read posts and provided links attentively, try to understand and ask if necessary.

@Johannes, I will take it into account next time I post in the forum.
Regarding my question, I also tried using hyperref without options (i.e., dvips, oder pdftex or similar) but it did not work.
