This is a great help, thanks. Will pull and try it tonight.

I suppose I must be using the old exporter, since the variable without -e- enabled PDF conversion. That's working fine for me, but I should probably look into the new exporter (assuming the old one will be removed sometime). Good to know how to do it in both cases.

Thanks again!

Note that Org provides a BIND mechanism for such cases.

So, adding:

  #+BIND: org-e-export-opt-preferred-output-format "pdf"

somewhere in the buffer should be enough.

I was wrong about the new exporter - org-e-odt.el.

I didn't realize I need to change variable name.  One should use the new
`org-e-odt-preferred-output-format' instead.

Old exporter
============

If you are using org-odt.el, then you can use file local variables.  I
have pushed a fix which makes string values of this variable safe.

    M-x add-file-local-variable RET org-export-odt-preferred-output-format
    RET "pdf" RET

Or 

Add the following to your Org file.  Remember to re-visit the file to
activate the newly installed value.

    # Local Variables:
    # org-export-odt-preferred-output-format: "pdf"
    # End:


New exporter
============

The above local variable trick will fail in case of org-e-odt.el.  When
I get some time I will introduce a per-buffer keyword for this variable.

Hi,

I have one particular org file that I would like to export to PDF by way of ODT. (I already set up outline styling in LibreOffice and I would like to use that, instead of trying to reconfigure a similar look in LaTeX. For fun, I did try the LaTeX pdf export and the output format is not what I need for this case.)

But I may want to export other org files to ODT *without* converting them to PDF.

http://orgmode.org/manual/Extending-ODT-export.html

This says I can customize the org-export-odt-preferred-output-format variable. This works beautifully, but it's a global setting that will apply to every ODT export.

So my question is -- is there any export option for the preferred format, per file? Something like:

#+ODT_PREFERRED_FORMAT: pdf

I couldn't find any documentation in the ODT export section of the manual for an option like this.

Alternately, I suppose I could write a lisp function that would set the variable and call the export, but that would definitely be a hack.

Thanks in advance,
hjh
