Oh, yes, I used the default MacTeX viewer for the pdf, namely, the OS X Preview. Which is what, I imagine, most Mac users would use when viewing any pdf, whether one generated from TeX or not. It does work as expected when I view the pdf in Acrobat Reader. Any way to get this to work with Preview, too? On Aug 16, 2013, at 9:02 AM, Eduardo M. A. M.
