12.18 Export in Foreign Buffers

The export back-ends in Org often include commands to convert selected regions. A convenient feature of this in-place conversion is that the exported output replaces the original source. Here are such functions:

org-ascii-convert-region-to-ascii

Convert the selected region into ASCII.

org-ascii-convert-region-to-utf8

Convert the selected region into UTF-8.

org-html-convert-region-to-html

Convert the selected region into HTML.

org-latex-convert-region-to-latex

Convert the selected region into LaTeX.

org-texinfo-convert-region-to-texinfo

Convert the selected region into Texinfo.

org-md-convert-region-to-md

Convert the selected region into Markdown.

In-place conversions are particularly handy for quick conversion of tables and lists in foreign buffers. For example, in an HTML buffer, write a list in Org syntax, select it, and convert it to HTML with M-x org-html-convert-region-to-html.
