CTAN update: aeb-mlink

Date: April 25, 2018 3:41:10 PM CEST
Donald P. Story submitted an update to the aeb-mlink package. Version number: 2018-04-20 License type: lppl1 Summary description: Multi-line links with hyperref Announcement text:
The aeb_mlink package defines new link commands to create multi-line links. The new commands are \mlhypertext, \mlhyperlink, \mlhyperref, \mlnameref, \mlNameref, \mlhref, and \mlurl. PDF Creators: Adobe Distiller or ps2pdf What's New (2018/04/20): Previously, the links created by aeb_mlink consisted of a series of rectangles around each of the syllables of the hypertext or url; the little rectangles responded in unison when any one of them were clicked. In this version, Postscript procedures are used to combine the little rectangles into one rectangle per line of hypertext. Also the Rect entry has been changed to be the smallest rectange that encloses the hypertext (or url). The Postscript tries to detect problems with the links, and reports to the log (distiller or ps2pdf log). The PDF Specification does not support cross-page links, to resolve this issued, a method of 'cracking' a link apart, breaking it into two links. The second link is free to move to the next page.
The package's Catalogue entry can be viewed at http://www.ctan.org/pkg/aeb-mlink The package's files themselves can be inspected at http://mirror.ctan.org/macros/latex/contrib/aeb_mlink
