## Hyperref in 2018 and 2019 TeXLive

 I want to reference external documents using hyperref on the files test1 and test2 below. I have no problems using the 2018 TeXLive distribution. With the 2019 distribution the numbers are correct but the links are dead. Everything works with either distribution if I replace "\hyperref" (two arguments) by a simple "\ref" (one argument). Any clues? Thanks!

## Re: Hyperref in 2018 and 2019 TeXLive

 I installed the MacTeX-2020 distribution hoping that the hyperref problem would be solved, but this does not seem to be the case. The examples below work with the 2018 distribution but not with the 2019 or 2020. Any suggestions? Thanks.

Given your answer, I understand that you tried the example and it isn't working, is that so? Thanks again.

The links aren't dead but in Preview I get a dialog box saying The application can't be opened' and in Adobe Reader I get a dialog asking if it ok to open the URL to the file but then nothing happens. I did have to typeset each document and then do each document again in order to get the references correct.

They give dead links in Preview (Catalina 10.15.4) and I suspect Skim does the same since they both use PDFKit. Under Adobe Reader clicking on the link brings up a side panel element to convert the file to docx!? In neither case does it work as I would expect, i.e., it brings up the other document.
