Description alt.bi-5h84u8i 2017-09-19 15:50:34 UTC
If pdftocairo is used to convert a PDF to an SVG, all clickable hyperlinks in the PDF document are lost in the target SVG file. The SVG produced by pdftocairo shows only the text of the link's label. This is the sample LaTeX code that was used to create the PDF:

That looks like a very old version of Poppler - 0.26.5. Can you test this with Poppler 0.67.0?
