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
hyperref package, the default setup produces fully-linked PDF
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. It includes packages that are not compatible with
luatex. The LaTeX exporter can be configured to support
alternative TeX engines, see the options
