12.6.1 LaTeX export commands

C-c C-e l     (org-export-as-latex)
Export as a LaTeX file. For an Org file myfile.org, the LaTeX file will be myfile.tex. The file will be overwritten without warning. If there is an active region1, only the region will be exported. If the selected region is a single tree2, the tree head will become the document title. If the tree head entry has or inherits an EXPORT_FILE_NAME property, that name will be used for the export.
C-c C-e L     (org-export-as-latex-to-buffer)
Export to a temporary buffer. Do not create a file.
C-c C-e v l/L
Export only the visible part of the document.
M-x org-export-region-as-latex
Convert the region to LaTeX under the assumption that it was in Org mode syntax before. This is a global command that can be invoked in any buffer.
M-x org-replace-region-by-latex
Replace the active region (assumed to be in Org mode syntax) by LaTeX code.
C-c C-e p     (org-export-as-pdf)
Export as LaTeX and then process to PDF.
C-c C-e d     (org-export-as-pdf-and-open)
Export as LaTeX and then process to PDF, then open the resulting PDF file.

In the exported version, the first 3 outline levels will become headlines, defining a general document structure. Additional levels will be exported as description lists. The exporter can ignore them or convert them to a custom string depending on org-latex-low-levels.

If you want that transition to occur at a different level, specify it with a numeric prefix argument. For example,

     C-2 C-c C-e l

creates two levels of headings and does the rest as items.
