‘texinfo’ uses a pre-defined scheme, or class, to convert headlines into
Texinfo structuring commands. For example, a top level headline appears as
@chapter if it should be numbered or as
otherwise. If you need to use a different set of commands, e.g., to start
@part instead of
@chapter, install a new class in
org-texinfo-classes, then activate it with
keyword. Export process defaults to
there is no such keyword in the document.
If a headline's level has no associated structuring command, or is below a certain threshold see Export settings, that headline becomes a list in Texinfo output.
As an exception, a headline with a non-nil
:APPENDIX: property becomes
an appendix, independently on its level and the class used.
Each regular sectioning structure creates a menu entry, named after the
heading. You can provide a different, e.g., shorter, title in
:ALT_TITLE: property (see Table of contents). Optionally, you can
specify a description for the item in
:DESCRIPTION: property. E.g.,
* Controlling Screen Display :PROPERTIES: :ALT_TITLE: Display :DESCRIPTION: Controlling Screen Display :END:
