12.10.2 LaTeX specific export settings

The LaTeX export back-end has several additional keywords for customizing LaTeX output. Setting these keywords works similar to the general options (see Export settings).

DESCRIPTION
The document's description. The description along with author name, keywords, and related file metadata are inserted in the output file by the ‘hyperref’ package. See org-latex-hyperref-template for customizing metadata items. See org-latex-title-command for typesetting description into the document's front matter. Use multiple #+DESCRIPTION lines for long descriptions.
LATEX_CLASS
This is LaTeX document class, such as article, report, book, and so on, which contain predefined preamble and headline level mapping that the LaTeX export back-end needs. The back-end reads the default class name from the org-latex-default-class variable. Org has article as the default class. A valid default class must be an element of org-latex-classes.
LATEX_CLASS_OPTIONS
Options the LaTeX export back-end uses when calling the LaTeX document class.
LATEX_COMPILER
The compiler, such as ‘pdflatex’, ‘xelatex’, ‘lualatex’, for producing the PDF (org-latex-compiler).
LATEX_HEADER
Arbitrary lines to add to the document's preamble, before the ‘hyperref’ settings. See org-latex-classes for adjusting the structure and order of the LaTeX headers.
LATEX_HEADER_EXTRA
Arbitrary lines to add to the document's preamble, before the ‘hyperref’ settings. See org-latex-classes for adjusting the structure and order of the LaTeX headers.
KEYWORDS
The keywords for the document. The description along with author name, keywords, and related file metadata are inserted in the output file by the ‘hyperref’ package. See org-latex-hyperref-template for customizing metadata items. See org-latex-title-command for typesetting description into the document's front matter. Use multiple #+KEYWORDS lines if necessary.
SUBTITLE
The document's subtitle. It is typeset as per org-latex-subtitle-format. If org-latex-subtitle-separate is non-nil, it is typed as part of the ‘\title’-macro. See org-latex-hyperref-template for customizing metadata items. See org-latex-title-command for typesetting description into the document's front matter.
