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.

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.
