I had to do a little extra work to get subtree export to work properly. Subtree 
export appears to also not append ‘LATEX_HEADER_EXTRA’ to the header. I had to 
add the values I need to the properties of the subtree using

LaTeX fragment preview weirdness

2021-06-02 Thread Scott Randby

First, I'm using Emacs 27.2 and Org 9.4.6.

I have the following code in an Org file:

#+latex_header: 
\hypersetup{pdfauthor={Author},pdftitle={Title},pdfsubject={Subject},pdfkeywords={keyword},pdfproducer={Emacs
 Org},pdfcreator={pdflatex}}
#+latex_header: \hypersetup{colorlinks=true,urlcolor=blue,linkcolor=black}

The above lines are in a section at the end of my document.

When I do C-c C-x C-l in a section (or with a fragment at point), the following 
appears above every  fragment that is previewed:

pdfauthor=Author,pdftitle=Title,pdfsubject=Subject,pdfkeywords=keyword,pdfproducer=Emacs
 Org,pdfcreator=pdflatex colorlinks=true,urlcolor=blue,linkcolor=black

Here is a sample section from my Org file:

--BEGIN--

* Distance Formula

Let $d$ be the distance between $(x_{1}, y_{1})$ and $(x_{2}, y_{2})$.
\[
d=\sqrt{\left(x_{1}-x_{2}\right)^{2}+\left(y_{1}-y_{2}\right)^{2}}

Here's the current command for the "latexmk" option:

"latexmk -f -pdf -%latex -interaction=nonstopmode -output-directory=%o %f"


The option "-interaction=nonstopmode" forbids user interaction (like
asking for a missing file). Without this explicit option latexmk uses
"-interaction=batchmode" by default - in this case some diagnotic
messages to the terminal (not log file) are suppressed. Thus the
default option from latexmk might suffice.

Regarding "-f" versus "-g" I personally would slightly prefer "-f" for
performance reasons. With "-g" the document will always be newly
generated, even if nothing changed. This is only useful if the latexmk
config (or some environment variable) has changed. Other changes
should be detectable by latexmk, so "-f" should suffice.

The options "-output-directory" and "-outdir" are synonyms.

Regarding the choise of engine: "-pdflatex=\"%latex\"" explicitly sets
the command (including options) to be called by latexmk, without
letting latexmk know that the engine changed. Using "-%latex" (e.g.
the option "-lualatex" or "-xelatex") lets latexmk know that a
different engine should be used.

This matters at least for xelatex, because latexmk can utilize some
optimizations if it knows that xetex is used. In this case the first
runs only produce .xdv files and only the last run will produce the
full pdf to save time (see also option "-pdfxe" which is triggered by
"-xelatex").

Therefore I would tend to use this call:

 "latexmk -f -pdf -%latex -outdir=%o %f"

All other aspects of latexmk should be configured via config file
(IMHO).


In any case, whatever the command is, clearly it should.




I'm no longer sure that a change would break my ability to export to PDF. I'm 
using Linux with TeX Live, and latexmk is available. I'm willing to try 
changing org-latex-pdf-process to one of the above suggestions, but I have some 
questions. I've never used latexmk, and I really depend on Org to set things up 
so that they just work out of the box. It took me a long time to figure out how 
to get Emacs to find TeX so that previewing LaTeX fragments works (the solution 
is not in the Org manual).

(1) Which one of the above suggestions should I use? I don't want interactions 
when I'm exporting. I don't want to have to mess with a configuration file 
either.

(2) How many shell commands will org-latex-pdf-process need? Right now there 
are three. Replace those three with just one latexmk?

At the time I suggested changing default to use latexmk, which will

So what do LaTeX users think about changing the default for

Is there any reason not to do this?



One reason is that latexmk is not installed on some systems. This means
it will require users to install an additional package not previously
required. It is also a perl script, so will need perl installed - not
sure what sort of overhead this might represent for Windows and Mac
users? Does latexmk work on all the platforms Emacs+org is supported on?

It isn't hard for users who want to use latexmk to set the value and as
it will break the installation for many existing users, I think we need
to be careful about changing this default. For many users who don't use
bibtex, this change could mean they have to install additional
software with little other observable benefit or change the default back
to what it is.

If we do make this change, it will be necessary to update any docs to
add details about the additional dependncy and how to resolve it (for
all supported platforms).




As a constant user of Org's LaTeX export capability, this change would break my 
ability to export to PDF, and it would be difficult for me to fix. I don't 
support this change.

This is a very nice start in my opinion. There is one thing, something which

bugged me for a long time though. That thing is the advertisement for "The Org 
Mode 7 Reference Manual." Org is now at version 9.3.7, there have been

[O] Weird Headline Behavior

2019-02-08 Thread Scott Randby
Hello,

I've been noticing some unusual behavior when I manipulate headlines (Org 9.2).

I have the following (or something similar) at the very end of many Org files:

* LOCAL VARIABLES
# Local Variables:
# mode: org
# coding: utf-8-unix
# End:

If I copy this subtree (C-c C-x M-w) and then yank it (C-c C-x C-y) into into 
the same file or another file, only the headline is yanked, the rest of the 
subtree is not.

In addition, if I decide to delete a different headline in the file (C-c C-x 
C-w) while the LOCAL VARIABLES headline is folded, then this appears on the 
display:

* LOCAL VARIABLES...# Local Variables:
# mode: org
# coding: utf-8-unix
# End:

I don't know if these facts are relevant or not, but this behavior happens when 
org-indent-mode is both on and off, and I have org-tags-column set to 0.

The folding behavior is not big deal since S-TAB or something similar corrects 
everything, but it is inconvenient to have to use regular copy and yank 
commands when I want to copy the subtree to a different file. Can anyone 
provide some insight into this?

I'm one of those who came to Emacs because of Org. I read an article in some

It is great that people want to implement Org functionality into other 
software, but the issue I have with beorg and Visual Source Code is that 
neither is free software. In the case of beorg, Org is mentioned repeatedly on 
its website as an inspiration, but what is the contribution of the beorg 
developers back to the Org community? The central feature of Org is that it is 
free software. In my view, non-free products like beorg are fundamentally 
broken.

It would be wonderful to see new good ideas implemented in other systems, but 
in the case of proprietary software like beorg or Visual Source Code, their 
non-free nature makes it risky to re-implement in Org any new ideas they use 
(if they ever use any). I hope all the new good ideas for Org first exist as 
free software. That seems likely given the pace at which Org develops and the 
vitality of the Org community.

I had to stop using the align and shrink startup options because at least one

the macro put a table in the proper state before it does anything to that 
table, but that is one more thing I have to remember to put in the macro. It

This sort of works, but it doesn't give me the correct link when I export to 
HTML. I was hoping to check links to anchors in HTML files before exporting to 
HTML, but maybe that was wishful thinking. Oh well, it is easy enough to check

Greetings Org users,

I installed Org 9.2 and I'm enjoying some of the new features.

The new structure template mechanism is really nice because now I only have to 
remember C-c C-,.

The ability to dynamically narrow and widen table columns makes it a lot easier 
to work with tables which have a large number of columns.

Being able to exclude unnumbered headlines from the table of contents solves a 
problem I've struggled with for awhile.

The best new feature for me is the attachment of the new variable 
org-toggle-narrow-to-subtree to the "s" speed key. I narrow to subtrees 
constantly, and this new feature means I will soon forget the old cumbersome 
way without regret.

Like previous releases, Org 9.2 is a superb release. Everyone who worked to 
make this release happen has my appreciation and thanks.

I'm sorry, but I can't address any of your three issues. My site is in English 
only, I use regular links, and my style is very simple and made so the site 
will work well on any device. Here is a link to it: http://srandby.org/

The Org source code isn't available yet, but it isn't anything special. The key 
is really the CSS which you can easily obtain.

For publishing, I update a file, use Org's HTML export facility (C-c C-e h or 
C-c C-e C-s h to export a subtree), and then upload to the server. Not very 
sophisticated, but I find it to be very efficient.

I haven't had time to look into the more complex things one can do regarding 
Org and websites.

I think Org is a good website publishing tool in many ways. I've been using it 
for making and publishing my website since 2010. Sure, it has some limitations, 
but I think it can be made to work nicely for a lot of types of sites. But I do 
agree that the Org/Hugo combination is really good.

I appreciate the clarification. Your method is very useful to me since I 
frequently have to work with people who know nothing but Word and since 
LibreOffice doesn't deal well with some of the poorly formatted DOCX files I 
receive. I've been experimenting with some sample files, and your method works 
great.

I know this is a lost cause, but I dream of the future in which document 
collaboration is done using only text files.

I'm confused. My understanding is that Pandoc converts between file formats, so 
I don't understand what you mean by a Pandoc file. What is the file format of 
pandoc-A?

Is this what you mean?

Pandoc: Org -> word-A

Okay, I don't really understand the issue being discussed in the thread, but if 
num:nil gives me an unnumbered table of contents after HTML export, I'm good. I 
also export to LaTeX, but I recognize that there are issues with LaTeX table of 
contents and I just work around them.

I need to sit down and read the Org manual. For years, I've been using toc:t 
and getting more in the table of contents than I wanted. Discovering that I can 
use something like toc:1 was exactly what I needed a long time ago. I know 
there are other things in Org that I want now and just don't know about. There 
are disadvantages to my haphazard approach to Org.

I have to agree with Carsten. I use unnumbered table of contents all the time 
in web pages. Almost all of my Org files that generate web pages have the 
following:

#+options: num:nil toc:t

The change should be reverted. I wish I had paid attention to this thread. I 
thought it was about something else.

I use OrgStruct in my configuration files, but it is so limited that I've been

[O] EXPORT_HTML_HEAD Issue

2017-08-12 Thread Scott Randby
In the properties of a subtree, I have several :EXPORT_HTML_HEAD: lines. When I 
export to HTML, only the first of the lines exports to the header. I can get 
two lines to export to the header by using :EXPORT_HTML_HEAD: followed by a 
:EXPORT_HTML_HEAD_EXTRA: line, but I need more than two such lines. This 
behavior does not happen when I have several #+HTML_HEAD: lines the document. 
What is going on? Using Org 9.0.3.

[O] LaTeX Export

2017-08-09 Thread Scott Randby
I have a file with a large number of top-level headlines. Each subtree 
corresponding to a top-level headline is exported to its own PDF file. The 
subtrees all use the same LaTeX headers except for \hypersetup. Right now, I 
have to uncomment the \hypersetup manually whenever I export a subtree. I would 
like to have the export engine automatically recognize which \hypersetup to use 
instead.

I tried this in the properties associated with a subtree: 

:export_latex_header: 
\hypersetup{pdfauthor={foo},pdftitle={foo},pdfsubject={foo},pdfkeywords={foo},pdfproducer={foo},pdfcreator={foo}}

Unfortunately, all the other LaTeX headers are unrecognized when I do this. I 
could put all of the LaTeX headers in the properties of each subtree, but that 
would make it difficult to make universal changes to the overall style.

Is there some way to do what I want? Something like this?

:export_add_latex_header: 
\hypersetup{pdfauthor={foo},pdftitle={foo},pdfsubject={foo},pdfkeywords={foo},pdfproducer={foo},pdfcreator={foo}}

Just one comment. When I click on the "Show Org source" button at the

page, and the file org-quotes.org.html exists, so I don't know what the

I have an idea about how to generate an index page, but I haven't had
time to work out the details. Instead, since it isn't much work, I will
add entries by hand to an index page. I don't have an index page right

Maybe this is too primitive, but I keep all the content in one Org file
and export the text under each top-level headline as a single HTML page.
I use some simple macros if I need to export more than one top-level
headline. I keep the CSS code in a separate file. Keeping all the
content in one file makes it really easy to add new pages and edit old

You can try using commas to separate items.

List with commas inserted:

3/4 cup, milk
2 tablespoons, white vinegar
1 cup, all-purpose flour
2 tablespoons, white sugar
1 teaspoon, baking powder
1/2 teaspoon, baking soda
1/2 teaspoon, salt
1, egg
2 tablespoons, butter melted
, cooking spray

(Notice that I eliminated the comma in "butter, melted")

Resulting table:

| 3/4 cup   | milk  |
| 2 tablespoons | white vinegar |
| 1 cup | all-purpose flour |
| 2 tablespoons | white sugar   |
| 1 teaspoon| baking powder |
| 1/2 teaspoon  | baking soda   |

I agree that breaking backward compatibility is a problem, but I support
this change because font locking of LaTeX code (and others) now works
well. There is a function in the CHANGES document
(http://orgmode.org/Changes.html) called org-repair-export-blocks that
works really well. I added the function to my customizations file and
run it whenever I need to modify and export an older file.

You need to change "#+BEGIN_LaTeX" to "#+begin_export latex" and
"#+END_LaTeX" to "#+end_export" for Org 9.0 and above.

This doesn't happen with Org 9.0.3 in GNU Emacs 24.5.1 on Xubuntu 16.04.
Maybe updating Org will fix the problem.

> What would these links look like? And what should they render too?

I wasn't suggesting support for the idea, I was just suggesting that it
makes sense to to both video and audio if they are to be done.

However, I currently use export blocks to do video and audio export. I
don't have a problem with continuing that practice since it works well
for me. Here are two examples:

#+begin_export html

  

Your browser does not support the audio tag.
  

#+end_export

#+begin_export html

  
Your browser does not support the video tag.
  

#+end_export

Styling is done via a CSS file.

It might be difficult to agree on what a video or audio link type
renders to by default.

If there is to be a link type to videos, then I think there should be

It seems odd to me that Org would see multiple subscripts as being
really one subscript. And the spacing in the subscript when a_b_c is
exported and processed is still bad.

I realize that Org is not a front-end to LaTeX. But the standards of
other output formats are not the standards of LaTeX. Different output
formats have different purposes. In this case, one could view Org as
forcing text mode on the user when math mode is appropriate.

If this was true, then a_b would be exported to a\_b instead of
a\(_\text{b}\). Math mode is entered any time \(...\) is used, and in
the a_b case, the user did not explicitly request it.

I have a few comments about the choice you've made for the translation
of underscores that do not appear in \(...\) or $...$ expressions. I've
attached a PDF to help explain my points.

First, a_b_c and a_bc give nearly identical results when processed
except that the spacing between letters in the subscript coming from
a_b_c is wider than that in the subscript coming from a_bc. The spacing
issue can be seen more clearly by comparing the processed versions of
a_b_c_d and a_bcd. The wider spacing looks funny when compared to
surrounding text.

Second, I've been considering the issue of what the primary meaning of
a_b_c should be when it is used in a file. Since underscores are used in
LaTeX to designate subscripts in mathematical expressions, it is clear
to me that a_b_c should mean a_(b_c) instead of a_(bc). Similarly, a^b^c
should mean a^(b^c) instead of a^(bc). I really can't think of any case
when I would type in a_b_c in order to get a_(bc).

Finally, I question the use of text style instead of math style when
a_b, a^b, or similar expressions are exported to LaTeX. TeX was designed
to produce beautiful typeset mathematics, and the math style is an
essential part of that beauty. Math style is also the expected way of
presenting mathematical expressions in all of the professional journals
that I read and use. New users may not be aware of professional
standards, but we could help them be aware by translating a_b_c as
\(a_{b_{c}}\) exactly. Similarly a^b^c would be translated as
\(a^{b^{c}}\) exactly.

However, the translation of a_b_c doesn't matter a whole lot to me since
I always use \(a_{b_{c}}\) or $a_{b_{c}}$ in my Org documents.

With this solution, "a" will be exported as text while "b" and "c" will
be exported as a single subsrcipt using the math font. I would prefer
that a_b_c be translated as \(a_{b_{c}}\).

Org only literally copies some expressions. The expression "A_B_C" is
not a LaTeX expression and it cannot be literally copied when exporting
to LaTeX. Instead, Org must export "A_B_C" to a LaTeX expression. In
this case, Org exports to "A\(_{\text{B}}_{\text{C}}\)" because in LaTeX
the underscore character is used for subscripts in mathematical
expressions. The exported string is not a valid LaTeX expression because
the original string is incomplete. If you don't want Org LaTeX export to
export the underscore character to a subscript, the you need to tell Org
you want it to do that with additional markup such as "~A_B_C~" or
something similar. As someone who relies on Org's LaTeX exporting
capability, I would not be in favor of changing how Org exports a
non-LaTeX expression containing underscores.

I don't think it is possible to have a markup scheme that enables one to
perfectly export every document to every possible format. For instance,
LaTeX and HTML were designed to meet very different needs. The
intersection of these two markup languages is far from the union of
them. Org does a fantastic job of taking care of the intersection, and
it also includes wonderful tools that allow users to deal with instances
outside of the intersection.

I generally avoid exporting an Org file to both LaTeX and HTML (the two
export formats I use) unless the file is very basic. It is too much work
to make a file that exports to both formats well. But I can't blame Org
for that problem. It is the differing natures and purposes of LaTeX and
HTML that cause the trouble.

I'm not saying that Org export is as good as it can be. Certain aspects
of the default LaTeX export could be improved to help new users in my
opinion, but I haven't had the time to suggest those improvements.

I sympathize with the problems some new users may face when exporting an
Org file to various formats. I have friends who moved to Org but had
trouble with PDF export because they had no knowledge of LaTeX or
understanding of TeX distributions. Installing Emacs was a challenge for
some of my friends. The only solution I've been able to devise is to
provide as much help as possible and to encourage my friends to
subscribe to this mailing list.

I don't think you can blame Org for the crashes you've experienced. Org
exports the string "a_variable_deleteThisAndItWorks" to
"a\(_{\text{variable}}_{\text{deleteThisAndItWorks}}\)" which is not a
valid LaTeX expression. This invalid output is not the fault of Org, it
is the fault of the input string. Since there are different ways of
interpreting "a_variable_deleteThisAndItWorks," you have to tell Org
which interpretation you want it to make when you export to LaTeX. This
means additional markup of the string is required.

That the exported LaTeX file crashes your installation of pdfTeX (or
whatever TeX engine you use) when you process it is not the fault of
Org. The exported LaTeX file contains an invalid LaTeX expression that
came from a ambiguous string, so pdfTeX shows an error when processing
the LaTeX file. Using additional markup of the string so that Org
exports it as a valid LaTeX expression is the solution to the problem.

I don't think I have a good enough technical understanding of the issue

it works and specifying literal LaTeX when necessary. I don't need to

It seems I misunderstood the original question.

There is an interesting issue here. I sometimes want to use ~ in a code
snippet, so I can't use ~code snippet~. Yet,

Org code: \verb@a_variable_deleteThisAndItWorks@

Exported LaTeX: \verb@a\(_{\text{variable}}_{\text{deleteThisAndItWorks}}\)@

The exported LaTeX is not what we want. Instead,

Org code: #+latex:\verb@a_variable_deleteThisAndItWorks@

Alternative: @@latex:\verb@a_variable_deleteThisAndItWorks@@@

Exported LaTeX: \verb@a_variable_deleteThisAndItWorks@

I've wondered why \verb isn't exported correctly without specifying it
as literal LaTeX, but I don't have the expertise to be able to determine
why.

I exported your file using LaTeX export without trouble. The result does
look odd, but that is because the string you gave is missing the braces
needed to make it export properly. The output messages warn that the
string contains a double subscript, so the problem is with the string
and not Org's LaTeX export.

Your string: a_variable_deleteThisAndItWorks

Properly formed string: a_{variable_{deleteThisAndItWorks}}

I'll just give all the commands even though some of them are known to
all org users. This is a totally manual process because I don't have
time to learn how to automate it.

1. Open the agenda: C-c a

2. Switch to month view: v m

3. Navigate to the desired month. Initially, I had to export every
month during which I had stuff on my calendar, but now I just update a
month when I make a change.

4. Export to html: C-x C-w

To export to html, you need to use the .html extension when you name
the file. You can export to other file formats, but the html export is
really nice. See the Exporting Agenda Views section of the manual for
more information.

Since I lack the knowledge that appears to be needed to get calendar
syncing to work, my need for a calendar on my phone is limited, and it
pains me greatly to make any changes to my calendar outside of org, I
have a very primitive system for transferring my calendar to my phone.

Whenever I make a change to my calendar on my laptop, I open the agenda
to show the month which contains the change, export that month to an
html file (with a name like 2016-10.html), and upload the html file to
my phone via Bluetooth. The html file looks good when I open it on my
Android phone and I don't have to carry my laptop everywhere.

At first, I used Dropbox instead of transferring via Bluetooth, but the
Android Dropbox app has permission to take over your phone and that
worried me (I have all the Google apps except one turned off on my
phone). I like the fact that I don't have to connect to the Internet to
transfer the calendar to the phone.

Yes, this system is embarrassingly simple and it has no features that
many would want to have, but I don't need those features. All I need is
to be able to look at my calendar when I don't have my laptop, and this
system allows me to do that.

I don't know if I can answer your questions, but I used to do something 
similar to what you want using Org and CSS. I had a navigation list at 
the top and a fixed table of contents. There are some disadvantages to 
this setup and I no longer use it.


I still have some pages up which use this setup. You can see these pages 
by clicking on the following link:


  http://srandby.org/ictcm-2014/index.html

To get the navigation list, I had the following at the top of the Org 
file before any headlines (two items are not used in the above page):


#+BEGIN_HTML


  
Home
Lessons
Help
  


#+END_HTML

In the CSS file for the page, I had the following code to style the list:

/* Navigation List Styles Begin */
div #nav {
  position: absolute;
  left: 10px;
  top: 5em;
}

#nav ul {
  margin: 3px 10px 10px 5px;
  list-style: none outside none;
  padding: 0px 0px 0px 0px;
}

#nav ul li {
  margin-right: 4px;
  margin-bottom: 5px;
  float: left;
  margin-top: 20px;
}

#nav a {

  padding: 5px;
  text-decoration: none;
  font-weight: bold;
  border: 5px solid blue;
  border-radius: 10px;
}
/* Navigation List Styles End */

It is easy to place the table of contents generated by Org wherever you 
want it using CSS. Here is to CSS code I used to style the table of 
contents. This code is sloppy.


#table-of-contents {

You should use git-blame to find out if you care.


I don't use the git repository for Org, so I'll just have to leave that 
question unanswered.






The problems with the second bit of exported code is that it doesn't
scale the image to fit the block with 50% width (only a small part of
the image is visible), and you when you right click on the image, you
can't view it, save it or anything.

[...]

Clearly, Org 8.3 is not using an img tag when exporting SVG images
to HTML, something which is a major issue for me. It essentially makes
Org unusable for HTML export. I really would appreciate a fix for this
bug.


I'm not sure it's a bug.  It's IS clearly a quite complicated issue, e.g.:

 
http://stackoverflow.com/questions/4476526/do-i-use-img-object-or-embed-for-svg-files

Perhaps it should be configurable, perhaps even as a default and a
per-image basis (via #+attr_html).

If you can provide a (html) solution that takes into consideration the
issues mentioned on SO that would of course be great.  In the age of d3.js
interactivity COULD be an issue (I would always load interactive svgs
via JS, but I'm a pretty naïve svg user so I don't know what's possible).


I don't really have the technical knowledge required to address the 
issue. The configuration option is the best option in my view. One 
option allows SVGs to be handled the old way and the other the new way. 
Perhaps something like this:


#+ATTR_HTML: :svg img

or

#+ATTR_HTML: :svg object

In my view, the default should be img, but I intend for my pages to be 
viewed by browsers which support SVG images. I direct my students to 
those browsers. Also, the W3C draft document states that support for SVG 
via the img tag is the desired solution.


I will experiment a bit to see if I can get the object tag solution 
working for me. But given the short amount of time I have to get my 
pages up (by Sunday), I will probably put the desired HTML code into the 
Org file directly until the issue is resolved.

[O] Inline Images Export Bug

2015-08-26 Thread Scott Randby
When did Org start using the object tag for inline image HTML export? 
This is a horrible bug.


I use many SVG images in my documents. Here is a sample bit of Org code:

#+ATTR_HTML: :width 50% :style display: block; margin-right: auto; 
margin-left: auto;

[[./graphic-1.svg]]

I used to get this when exporting:

img src=./graphic-1.svg alt=graphic-1.svg width=50% 
style=display: block; margin-right: auto; margin-left: auto; /


Now I get this:

object type=image/svg+xml data=./graphic-1.svg width=50% 
style=display: block; margin-right: auto; margin-left: auto;Sorry, 
your browser does not support SVG./object


The problems with the second bit of exported code is that it doesn't 
scale the image to fit the block with 50% width (only a small part of 
the image is visible), and you when you right click on the image, you 
can't view it, save it or anything.


The documentation for 8.3.1 says this about org-html-inline-images:

   Non-nil means inline images into exported HTML pages.  This is done
   using an img tag.  When nil, an anchor with href is used to link
   to the image.

Clearly, Org 8.3 is not using an img tag when exporting SVG images to 
HTML, something which is a major issue for me. It essentially makes Org 
unusable for HTML export. I really would appreciate a fix for this bug.

Okay, I just checked (sorry, had to regenerate the files and that took
some time), and with the current version of Firefox the code I pasted is
unnecessary.

The problem I had with previous Firefox versions is that those decided
on a scale for displaying the SVG that differed from its preferred
resolution, but only if an object tag was used for inclusion; img tags
would use the preferred resolution and everything was fine.

The reason for the pt-to-px arithmetic is that graphviz outputs (or used
to) SVGs with a preferred size specified in pt only, not in px. I'm not
sure, but I think HTML pt and SVG pt don't necessarily agree.

Org mode is generating this tag:

object type=image/svg+xml data=org/op-prec.svg 
Sorry, your browser does not support SVG./object

Which looks okay to me. It's browser support that's the issue.


The problems with the second bit of exported code is that it doesn'tscale the 
image to fit the block with 50% width (only a small part of

Is it possible you're using an old browser? I'm on Iceweasel (Firefox)
38.1.0. (The bug was there a year or two ago, so by my standards it's a
recent fix that we shouldn't rely on yet.)


I'm using Firefox 40.0. I get the same behavior on Google Chrome 44.0 too.




and you when you right click on the image, youcan't view it, save it or 
anything.


Again, I can, using the This Frame popup menu.


Okay, that works.



But clearly that menu name is misleading and confusing in this case! And
I think that is reason enough to stick with the img tag for now: Firefox
users can't save the image unless they telepathically know that frame
means image. This Object might be okay, I guess.

My suggestion is to use img for images; that also appears to be the
consensus on Stack Overflow. Let's find a good syntax for including
interactive objects in Org mode, though.


This sounds reasonable.

So are you saying that Org is changing the size from px to pt?  Can you

Since time is of essence and you don't use the development version, would
you be able to use org 8.2.10?  It's bundled with Emacs 24.5.


I can stay with 8.3.1. It really isn't a problem for me to put the

this:

Am I missing something or is in-line styling just not a feature within

Hi Scott,

the main reason why 8.3 was not as stable as it should have been is
that I've been releasing it too quickly, after having been inactive
way too long.

It's kind of a miracle that Org development could continue without an
active official maintainer for so long, and we owe a lot to Nicolas
and other contributors for this.

So all the advice you got is good, but think of 8.3 as a come back
release, with problems that are largely due to me not paying attention
enough to all those small details that make a good release.

The cure is to deliver major releases at a steady pace, and I'm sure
having a release team will help a lot.


I've learned a lot from the advice I've been given, and I'm now better 
equipped to handle updates.




In the meantime, `org-latex-with-hyperref' will be back in 8.3.2 as
I don't see why we needed to remove this option too.


I appreciate this a great deal. It will make my life easier to have this

Hello,

Scott Randby sran...@gmail.com writes:


When I started using 8.3, I discovered that the behavior of commented
headlines had been changed---a change with which I disagree, a change
I could not find in the release notes, and one which forces me to
alter a huge number of files. It seems I missed the discussion about
commented headlines on the mailing list. This is due to my limited
knowledge of elisp and programming in general, a gap which makes it
difficult for me to follow the more technical discussions on the
mailing list. While it has been explained to me that the change is
a feature, I consider it to be a serious bug since it is not backwards
compatible.


I think this change is good. COMMENT status of headlines was muddy
before. The only information about them was the following excerpt (from
Org 8.2.9's manual)

   Also entire subtrees starting with the word ‘COMMENT’ will never be
   exported.

which can mean many things. You extrapolated this definition to one of
its possible meanings, but your definition, AFAIU, was :noexport:
tags's.

Now there is a clearer definition of a COMMENT headline, and a clear
distinction between COMMENT and :noexport:.

Note that you don't have to alter any of your files. The following
function can do it for you on the fly, before each export. You can also
used it to effectively alter your files automatically for you.

   (defun my-comment-to-noexport (backend)
 (interactive)
 (goto-char (point-min))
 (while (re-search-forward ^\\*+.*\\( COMMENT\\) nil t)
   (when (save-match-data (org-in-commented-heading-p t))
 (replace-match  nil nil nil 1)
 (org-set-tags-to (cons noexport (org-get-tags))

   (add-hook 'org-export-before-processing-hook #'my-comment-to-noexport)


This function won't work for me because I use COMMENT in two different 
ways. I didn't extrapolate the meaning of COMMENT, I copied its various 
uses from files that other people have posted in various places. It is 
more flexible for COMMENT to mean various things than it is for it to be 
pigeonholed to one narrow function. COMMENT wasn't broken until 8.3.




I admit it could have been notified in ORG-NEWS.


Another issue I had with 8.3 is the deletion of the
org-latex-with-hyperref variable, something I could not find in the
release notes (maybe I missed it). I understand that having Org insert
\hypersetup{...} details is the most desirable situation, but I fail
to see the harm in keeping org-latex-with-hyperref for those of us who
needed it in the past. Yes, I figured out a fix, but this is a fix
that forces me to stick with an outmoded way of doing things, and so
I consider this deletion to be a bug.


I'm not sure to understand. What is wrong with setting
`org-latex-hyperref-template' to the empty string?


I don't understand what is wrong with keeping org-latex-with-hyperref. 
It is easy enough for me to set the variable locally for old files while 
I can use the default \hypersetup{...} for new files. Making 
org-latex-hyperref-template an empty string means I cannot use the 
built-in default template.




This change was introduced in Feb 2014. It is a step forward since we
move from an opt-in/opt-out to a full customizable template.


I'm not sure why I didn't notice a problem before 8.3. Perhaps it is due 
to my irregular updating.




I overlooked the fact that this replacement wasn't signaled in ORG-NEWS,
tho. I will try to be more careful for next release.


I do understand that all software has bugs, and that everyone working
on Org is doing so voluntarily (thank you so much for your wonderful
work). But I was very surprised to find that the evaluation of table
formulas didn't work in 8.3.1. I could see something like this
happening in the development version, but it is somewhat mysterious to
me how such a bug could make its way into a stable release.


I introduced these changes a short time (three days) before release.
I made an announcement[fn:1] in order to warn there could be some
hiccups in that area. It may be obnoxious for you, but no bug was
reported before release.


I don't consider the bug to be obnoxious, I'm just trying to understand 
what is meant by a stable release.




Another example is the recent columns view bug report[fn:2]. The faulty
commit was pushed 2 months ago. Yet no one during development phase
complained about column view being broken. Even a feature freeze period
wouldn't have helped in that case.

You can't really avoid small glitches after a release.


Yes, I understand.




I guess what I want to know, and maybe there is no answer, is how long
should I wait before upgrading to a stable release? Org is by far the
most important piece of software I use (I hate it when I can't use

impossible, for me to get my real work done. If there is a way for me
to minimize encountering bugs, I will appreciate

Nothing is missing. I had difficulties with the default \hypersetup{...}

\hypersetup{...} instead. Since I now have a huge number of documents with
my own setup, it isn't worth it to go and change all of them.


If I understand hyperref correctly, I think it is okay to have multiple

Unfortunately, the \hypersetup{...} generated by org is last one in the

need more information about this change. Where can I find it?


% Is exported as \% in latex.

$ is a mess.  It's uses some heuristic to determine if it's a math snippet
or a currency symbol.

You can always use a snippet, @@latex:%@@ which is exported literally in
the backend before the colon.

Hope it helps,


Yes, that helps. Thank you.

I'm curious to know what you are missing in org-latex-hyperref-template?
What do you need in order to use the provided method?


Nothing is missing. I had difficulties with the default \hypersetup{...} 
with an old version of org, and my habit became to use my own 
\hypersetup{...} instead. Since I now have a huge number of documents 
with my own setup, it isn't worth it to go and change all of them.

I'm beginning to wonder if upgrading to 8.3.1 is a mistake. I had no

We appreciate your bug reports.  If you have got the time, please keep
testing Org 8.3 and let us know about errors you find.


When I update a table (using C-u C-c *, or C-u C-c C-c, or M-x
org-table-recalculate), the table doesn't update and I get the following
error message:

Wrong type argument: number-or-marker-p, (4)


I see this as well.


I can provide example tables if necessary.


The example below is sufficient.


I tried the example table given in section 3.5.10 of the documentation
and I get the same error.

Error message: Wrong type argument: number-or-marker-p, (6)

I will appreciate any help with this issue. If it can't be fixed, I will
have to downgrade to 8.2.10.


Can you try the attached patch?  It seems to work on the example from the
manual, but you likely have more straining examples at hand.


I applied the patch, and tried it on several tables which have simple 
and complex formulas. It works on those tables. Thanks for your help.

[O] Org 8.3.1 HTML export options

2015-08-06 Thread Scott Randby
HTML export in 8.3.1 no longer recognizes export options that are 
contained under a headline.


My documents contain the following:

* COMMENT Setup
#+STARTUP: hidestars overview indent hideblocks
#+HTML_HEAD: link rel=stylesheet type=text/css 
href=../lesson-style-new.css

#+HTML_MATHJAX: path: ../../../MathJax/MathJax.js?config=TeX-AMS_HTML
#+OPTIONS: H:3 num:nil toc:t author:nil timestamp:nil email:nil creator:nil
#+TITLE: Foo
#+AUTHOR: By Foo
#+EMAIL: f...@email.com

When I export to HTML, the link to the CSS style sheet is missing, the 
page title is blank, sections are numbered, MathJax uses the default 
settings, etc. None of the options I set are recognized (except for the 
startup options).


When I move the options to the top of the document and delete the 
headline, the options are exported properly.


#+STARTUP: hidestars overview indent hideblocks
#+HTML_HEAD: link rel=stylesheet type=text/css 
href=../lesson-style-new.css

#+HTML_MATHJAX: path: ../../../MathJax/MathJax.js?config=TeX-AMS_HTML
#+OPTIONS: H:3 num:nil toc:t author:nil timestamp:nil email:nil creator:nil
#+TITLE: Foo
#+AUTHOR: By Foo
#+EMAIL: f...@email.com

The first setup works in 8.2.10, and it is what I want.

I want the options to be under a headline so that they are out of the 
way when I work on a document, and so that I can more easily use them in 
other documents by copying and pasting a subtree. Please fix this. I 
would fix it, but I don't know elisp.

This is a feature.  COMMENT corresponds to prefixing each line of the
headline with #.

For your purpose I'd use a headline tagged with :noexport:, see
org-export-exclude-tags.


Thanks, that worked, but now I have to change the code on a huge number 
of files. It is hard to consider something a feature when it breaks a 
long accepted practice. It certainly isn't a good feature in my view. In 
fact, it is a terrible feature. I started doing it using the COMMENT 
headline for options because I'd seen it done by many other people.

Re: [O] html preamble

2015-03-24 Thread Scott Randby

On 03/23/2015 04:12 PM, hymie! wrote:

So my next task is to learn about the HTML preamble.


From reading the docs, it looks like all of my org files have to share a

single HTML preamble, which is set in my .emacs file through either the
org-html-preamble variable, the org-html-preamble-format variable, or the
org-publish-project-alist variable.  There is no way to tell a specific Org
file This is your HTML preamble.  Is that correct?

Why are there two different variables org-html-preamble-format and
org-html-preamble if the org-html-preamble variable can perform all of the
tasks of org-html-preamble-format and more?

Finally, how do I get the current date into the preamble?  I see that I can
specifically set a date, and I see the current date in a comment at the top
of my exported HTML, but I can't figure out how to get the current date out
of the comment and into my preamble.



I don't know if this helps, but I have postamble requirements in each 
file that I export. I believe you can do the same for the preamble. 
Below is an example from one of my files.



* COMMENT Postamble Settings

#+BEGIN_SRC emacs-lisp

;; Turn off postamble creation
(setq org-html-postamble nil)

;; Turn on postamble creation (default)
(setq org-html-postamble t)

;; Postamble format for lessons
(setq org-html-postamble-format (quote ((en p 
class=\author\Author: %a /p

p class=\email\Email: %e/p
p class=\creator\%c/p

;; Postamble format for non-lesson pages (default)
(setq org-html-postamble-format (quote ((en p 
class=\author\Author: %a /p

p class=\email\Email: %e/p
p class=\date\Date: %T/p
p class=\creator\%c/p
