What's New (2020-01-06) This package reads web.cfg (web package, if available). The web.cfg has changed format slightly, this update now conforms to that format. Defined new option urlOpts to pass options to the url package.
What's New (2018/08/18): Created turnSyllbCntOn (turnSyllbCntOff) to turn on (resp., off) the viewing of syllable numbers. Reorganize core program to accommodate the use of mlhypertext command within the program code of annotpro. (This is to implement text markup annotations in that package.)
What's New (2018/04/26): Included a 'dummy' package named aeb-mlink. The aebmlink package is listed on CTAN as aeb-mlink, though there is no such package by that name. Well, now there is.
What's New (2018/04/20): Previously, the links created by aebmlink 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.
This package requires the latest version of AeB, in particular, the eforms package required is dated 2018/03/22 or later. See ctan.org/pkg/acrotex.
In addition to the demo files distributed with the package, there are two new demo files available from the AcroTeX Blog webiste:
aebmlink: Fixing multi-line link boxes (http://www.acrotex.net/blog/?p=1377)
aebmlink: Crossing page boundaries with multi-line links (http://www.acrotex.net/blog/?p=1383)
Let me know if there are problems or suggested features. e-mail me at email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org
My other web site is http://blog.acrotex.net/ has the latest on my ruminations on LaTeX and PDF.
Now, I simply must get back to my retirement.
