Dear Org experts, 

I was wondering if anyone could advise on this simple problem.
My toy org file, shown as below, contains 3 projects. I’d like to  
export beamer PDFs for individual projects from time to time, 
but the pain is that I always need to modify the header options  
(title, select_tags etc) to match the project that I want to export. 

The question is what the best way is to organise the options for 
multiple projects? Ideally I’d like to put a copy of the options 
under each project, so that I only need to define them once. 
It’d be even better if I could specify the file that I want the project
to be exported to instead of the same pdf file matching my org
file.

#+TITLE: mytitle
#+AUTHOR: myself
#+DATE: \today
#+LaTeX_CLASS: mybeamer
#+SELECT_TAGS: export
#+EXCLUDE_TAGS: noexport
#+OPTIONS: H:4 toc:nil *:

** project 1
** project 2
** project 3

Thanks a lot!

Zhihao

You can add most of these keywords to the properties of a subtree by
prepending them with 'export_'.  I am not sure about the select tags,
though.  Why do you need them to differ between the projects?


Your Example:


--8<---------------cut here---------------start------------->8---
#+TITLE: mytitle
#+AUTHOR: myself

#+DATE: \today
#+LaTeX_CLASS: mybeamer

#+SELECT_TAGS: export
#+EXCLUDE_TAGS: noexport

#+OPTIONS: H:4 toc:nil *:

** project 1
:PROPERTIES:
:header-args:R: :session *mysession1*
:header-args: :cache yes
:EXPORT_TITLE: mytitle 1
:EXPORT_LaTeX_HEADER: \subtitle{mysubtitle 1}
:EXPORT_FILE_NAME: myfile1
:EXPORT_DATE: mydate 1
:EXPORT_LaTeX_CLASS: mybeamer 1
:EXPORT_OPTIONS: H:2 toc:nil
:END:
** project 2
:PROPERTIES:
:header-args:R: :session *mysession2*
:header-args: :cache yes
:EXPORT_TITLE: mytitle 2
:EXPORT_LaTeX_HEADER: \subtitle{mysubtitle 2}
:EXPORT_FILE_NAME: myfile2
:EXPORT_DATE: mydate 2
:EXPORT_LaTeX_CLASS: mybeamer 2
:EXPORT_OPTIONS: H:2 toc:nil
:END:
** project 3
:PROPERTIES:
:header-args:R: :session *mysession3*
:header-args: :cache yes
:EXPORT_TITLE: mytitle 3
:EXPORT_LaTeX_HEADER: \subtitle{mysubtitle 3}
:EXPORT_FILE_NAME: myfile3
:EXPORT_DATE: mydate 3
:EXPORT_LaTeX_CLASS: mybeamer 3
:EXPORT_OPTIONS: H:2 toc:nil
:END:
--8<---------------cut here---------------end--------------->8---


HTH,
Andreas

Thanks Andreas! This is very helpful. 

I am using tags to control how verbose I want my export to be 
and currently they differ slightly between projects. Quite often 
I also have project specific tags. But no problem I think that’s 
manageable with the layout you suggested. 

Best, 
Zhihao
