This is the official manual for the latest Org-mode release.
LaTeX export can produce an arbitrarily complex LaTeX document of any
standard or custom document class. With further processing1, which the LaTeX exporter is able to
control, this back-end is able to produce PDF output. Because the LaTeX
exporter can be configured to use the
hyperref package, the default
setup produces fully-linked PDF output.
As in LaTeX, blank lines are meaningful for this back-end: a paragraph will not be started if two contiguous syntactical elements are not separated by an empty line.
This back-end also offers enhanced support for footnotes. Thus, it handles nested footnotes, footnotes in tables and footnotes in a list item's description.
default LaTeX output is designed for processing with
latex. The LaTeX exporter can be configured to support alternative
TeX engines, see see
org-latex-pdf-process, and alternative packages,
