When I try to export from Org-mode to latex using C-c C-e l, the contents of LaTeX_CLASS_OPTIONS is always completely ignored. Here's a minimal example:


#+LaTeX_CLASS: article
#+LaTeX_CLASS_OPTIONS: [12pt,a4paper]

This is a clean version of Org-mode with no customisations. Any ideas? I don't know what else to try, yet it also seems too obvious to be a bug...

  • You example works fine for me. What is your version number for org-mode? – Andrew Swann Feb 18 '13 at 11:23
  • Actually I'm not sure how to check.. I am using Emacs 23 on Ubuntu 12.10 – John J. Camilleri Feb 18 '13 at 11:25
  • C-h v org-version. Mine is 7.8.03, not the absolutely newest. – Andrew Swann Feb 18 '13 at 11:27
  • Thanks, it tells me 6.33x! Guess that's pretty old, I will look into updating it – John J. Camilleri Feb 18 '13 at 11:28

It seems this was an issue with an old version of Org-mode (I was using 6.33). I have since updated to 7.8 and now it works as intended.
