Subject: fullpage.sty replacement [WAS: Problem with LaTeX snippets preview]
Date: Sat, 26 Sep 2009 07:36:46 -0400	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <19133.64718.952772.302330@nitrogen.burtket> (raw)

In another thread there was a discussion about replacing the
use of fullpage.sty with its functionality.

With continued thanks to Patrick Daly, the author of fullpage.sty and
my favorite LaTeX book "A Guide to LaTeX2e", I put the margin and text
size settings accomplished by fullpage.sty in org-format-latex-header
of org.el.
  Org-mode version 6.30trans (release_6.30d.882.gdbd63.dirty)
The diff below is offered as a step towards inlining the

The caveats:
 1. This is untested
    - When I execute org-export-as-pdf some other header appears in
      the .tex file, and I have not yet discovered the source of this
      other header.   
 2. This is the first time I've done a git diff.

If there are troubles in testing I will be happy to help resolve.  

Good morning,
