 This is {{{red(Text I want in red)}}}.

 Which exports to

 This is \textcolor{red}{Text I want in red}.


 Or, more generally,
 #+MACRO: color \textcolor{$1}{$2}

 This is {{{color(green,Text I want in green)}}}.

 Which exports to
 This is \textcolor{green}{Text I want in green}.

[O] Using color in latex export

2014-09-12 Thread Chaitanya Krishna
Hello all,

I would like to have some text in color when I export my org document to
latex.

I tried this:
...
#+latex_header: \usepackage{color}
\textcolor{red}{Text I want in red}
...

But, this is producing
...
\usepackage{color}
\textcolor{red}\{Text I want in red\} in the exported latex document.
...

How can I properly export the org file to latex and still have colored
text. How can I escape braces '{'?

Best regards,
Chai

Try this:

--8---cut here---start-8---
Here is some @@latex:\textcolor{red}{red text}@@
--8---cut here---end---8---
