Pandoc - Hyperlinking citation from latex to word

Hi all,

I don’t know if this is the right place to ask, but will give it a try!

I am very new with using terminals etc. I am trying to use pandoc to convert a file from Latex to Word. My problem is that I cannot find a way of hyperlinking references in the main text to the corresponding bibliography entries.

I use the following code on the terminal mac app: pandoc file.tex --citeproc --bibliography=bibfile.bib -o file.docx

It works fine generating the bibliography at the end of the document, but no hyperlink from the main text to the bibliography entries. I have been reading about “link-citations” metadata field that needs to be set to true, but I am not sure how to do so.

Many thanks in advance for your help,


I’m not sure the output format supports this feature (i.e. it might be intended for printing).

Try converting the same source doc to HTML and see if the hyperlinks work, if they do then the problem is either with the output format (Word/docx) or the bibliography extension (citepro).
