12.6 LaTeX and PDF export

Org mode contains a LaTeX exporter written by Bastien Guerry. With further processing1, this backend is also used to produce PDF output. Since the LaTeX output uses hyperref to implement links and cross references, the PDF output file will be fully linked. Beware of the fact that your org file has to be properly structured in order to be correctly exported: respect the hierarchy of sections.


[1] The default LaTeX output is designed for processing with pdftex or LaTeX. It includes packages that are not compatible with xetex and possibly luatex. See the variables org-export-latex-default-packages-alist and org-export-latex-packages-alist.
