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?
