### Powerdot: adding a hyperlink to open an external file

Hi,
I would like to add a link in my presentation which would open an
external PDF file. For example, I would have the phrase "Is this OK?"
where when I click on "OK" then an external PDF file will be opened.

Thanks.

Best Regards,
Y.Calleecharan

\hypersetup{backref=page, ...}

\begin{slide}{}
Is this OK?
\href{run:example.pdf}{OK}
\end{slide}

Greetings,
Christine

### Re: Powerdot: adding a hyperlink to open an external file

Thanks. It is working. However when one goes to the file example.pdf,
the original presentation file is closed. I can add another \href, this
time to example.pdf to open the presentation file again. But then the
presentation file opens at the beginning. How do I make the presentation
file to open again at the location where we had the line "Is this
\href{run:example.pdf}{OK}" ?

Thanks

powerdot-file.tex
-------------------------
slide number x:

Is this \href{run:example.pdf}{OK}

example.tex
------------------
\begin{document}

\href[page=x]{powerdot-file.pdf}{OK}

\end{document}

This command:

\href[page=x]{powerdot-file.pdf}{OK}

is not opening the file at the right page. We are still at the beginning
of the document.

Dear all,

I am attaching two tex files and the corresponding pdf files.
Both the files has forward and back button on the bottom left hand corner.
Once you navigate from talk.pdf file to extra.pdf file click on the back button and you should be able to jump back to the correct page in talk.pdf.

I have seen xpdf in fullscreen with continuous mode off does this nicely.
I think acrobat reader in windows also does it correctly. Let me know if you have any problem.

Regards,
Anjishnu

### movie in presentation does not work with TeXLive 2011

Hi,
I have a problem to make movie with (latest) TexLive 2011 and with
the latest Powerdot. Below is my code for the presentation. You can find
the additional files needed here:

test.ps and test.avi

http://petitlien.fr/platex

The compilation works fine with TexLive 2008 but not with TexLive 2011.
The DVIPS operation produces no complaints but the postscript file does
not include the slide on which the movie is. And the compilation to pdf
produces errors. Here is my workflow with TeXLive 2011:

latex "%1"
latex "%1"
latex "%1"
dvips -D7200 -Pcms -Ppdf -j0 -G0 "%1.dvi"
ps2pdf -dCompatibilityLevel#1.5 -sDEVICE=pdfwrite -r720
-dCompatibilityLevel=1.5 -dUseFlateCompression=true -dMaxSubsetPct=100
-dSubsetFonts=true -dEmbedAllFonts=true -dEPSCrop "%1.ps" "%1.pdf"

All files should be in the same folder.

The presentation file defense.tex is:

\documentclass[size=10pt,mode=present,paper=screen,letterpaper,landscape,english,style=myaggie,display=slides]{powerdot}
\usepackage{amssymb}
\usepackage{amsmath}
\usepackage{movie15}

\begin{document}
\begin{slide}[toc=,bm=]{Overview}
\tableofcontents[content=sections]
\end{slide}

%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%
\section{Background}
%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%
\begin{slide}{Motivation}
\begin{itemize}
\pause
\item These eccentricities and the phenomenon of
\textcolor{red}{unbalanced magnetic pull} (UMP) mutually affect each
other\\[3.7mm]
\pause
\item The present work has as aims to.
\end{itemize}
\end{slide}

%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%
\begin{slide}[toc=The UMP]{More about the unbalanced magnetic pull$\ldots$}
\onslide*{1}{
\begin{itemize}
\item The UMP has two components: A \textcolor{red}{radial} component
and a \textcolor{red}{tangential} one\\[3.7mm]
\end{itemize}
}

\end{slide}

\begin{wideslide}[toc=Simulation results]{Does not work with TL2011}
\onslide*{1}{
\vspace{-0.45em}
\def\scalew{1.0}
\def\scaleh{.57}
\includemovie[toolbar,autoresume,repeat=7,text={\includegraphics[width=\scalew\textwidth,height=\scaleh\textwidth]{test.ps}}]{}{}{test.avi}
\vspace{-1.25em}
\begin{itemize}
\item This does not work.
\end{itemize}
}
\end{wideslide}

\end{document}

So basically with TeXLive 2011, the last page containing the movie never
enter the presentation file. But everything works fine with TeXLive 2008.

Thank you.

Best Regards,
Y.Calleecharan

Add

-dNOSAFER

to the list of options of ps2pdf. This overrides security settings of
newer Ghostscript versions.
