Subject: [PATCH] org.el: Allow transparent background in latex images
Date: Wed, 16 Sep 2020 18:28:39 -0600	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <20200917002838.1037700-1-roshan.shariff@gmail.com> (raw)

* lisp/org.el (org-create-formula-image): When `:background' is set to
"Transparent" in `org-format-latex-options', do not output a
`\pagecolor{...}' command in the generated LaTeX file.  This will
cause dvisvgm, convert, or dvipng (with the `-bg Transparent' option)
to produce png or svg images with a transparent background.

* lisp/org.el (org-preview-latex-process-alist): Add the `-bg
Transparent' command-line option to dvipng, which causes it to produce
a PNG with an alpha channel when the dvi file has no `\background'
