Description Ulrike Fischer 2014-04-14 05:51:29 UTC
Created attachment 10829 [details]
ps-file, two pdf-files: one ok, one faulty.

When I compile this latex document 

\documentclass{book}
\usepackage{hyperref}
\begin{document}
\chapter{Titre}
lala\ref{chp:deux}
\chapter{Titre}\label{chp:deux}
\end{document}

with latex + dvips from a current tex system to a ps and then use "pdfwrite" in gsview to convert to a pdf file the internal hyperlink doesn't work in gs9.14. There is no problem when gs9.07 is used. 

latex+dvips+ps2pdf has the same problem in a current texlive (with gs9.14), but works fine with older gs9.14.

The attachment contains the ps-file and the two pdf-files created from it with pdfwrite. 

I used for the test Ghostscript 9.14 for Windows (64 bit) installed today from this source: http://www.ghostscript.com/download/gsdnld.html.

Both WinRAR and Winzip tell me the archive is corrupt, could you try again please ?

I have added a new attachment. How can I delete the faulty one?

Normally you select the 'obseletes attachemnt' box, but don't worry about it, I can read the new one.

Hmm, a better description of this and bug 695175 is probably that "pdfmark's in input ps are mis-processed in 9.14, a regression from 9.10".
Comment 6 Ken Sharp 2014-04-23 01:51:09 UTC
commit c79b0ee1dbc1cbbcbe406abd4bc47f617ed5cb2c fixes this problem for me. It seems that either I misunderstood the PDF reference manual or Acrobat doesn't follow it, references to named destinations in a Names tree must be string objects, not name objects, even though the spec says both are valid.
