## Footnote is not clickable and the PDF cannot be selected

### LaTeX Forum: General

Add tags LaTeX specific issues not fitting into one of the other forums of this category.
Say in chapter 2, page 10 I create a foonote (by doing: `\footnote{bla bla....}`). When I reference it in Page 10 I get a clickable reference to that footnote. But, in page 12 when I reference this footnote using `\footnotemark[\value{footnote}]` , I get the number of the footnote correct, but this time its not clickable. How can I fix this?

I am using Windows 7, MikTEX 2.9 and TexMaker. The PDF that I create is OK. But I can't seem to copy any text from the PDF. When I click on the text, a long vertical bar appears. I am using Adobe PDF for viewing.

Bye.

The optional argument to `\footnotemark` is not supported by the hyperref package, according to the hyperref README file. That's because it's not clear where the target is, for a manually specified mark.

Just for information to other users for awareness of possibly already existing solutions. The question has also been posted to {TeX} SX.
