Ah, I forgot that part as I do not use it.

Do you maintain the table of contents manually?

Do you always have one to one relationship between the anchor with and
without dot?

When programming, I jump between definitions using M-. and back with
M-,.  It seems that that way could feel more natural to me.

>From the brief look at hyperbole, I must admit that the dispatch is
complex and the configuration looks painful.  Moreover, I prefer eev
style buttons (i.e. no buttons and syntax at all, just elisp sexp
without any complexity or magic).  For url style hyperlinks, I prefer
ffap style jumping, except ffap is also painful to customize and
attempts to do other things beside jumping.  It would be much better, if
it used the *-functions style configuration like

   (rg-emacs "[-]functions")
   (grep "grep -r -nH --color '[-]functions' ~/mr/emacs")

as discussed in:
   (notmuch-search "pluggable-or")

Why are you trying to combine hyperbole with eev?
What are you trying to achieve?
