Subject: [tip] Export some footnotes as pdf annotations (LaTeX) or comments (odt)
Date: Fri, 22 Oct 2021 15:01:24 +0000	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <877de55cjf.fsf@posteo.net> (raw)


Sometimes I need to export an Org document with certain "meta-comments",
so I wrote this export filter to export those footnotes that start with
the string "!annot" to:

- [LaTeX] PDF annotations (requires the pdfcomment LaTeX package),

- [odt] Comments.

#+BIND: org-export-filter-footnote-reference-functions (my-custom-filters/export-footnote-as-annotation)
#+begin_src emacs-lisp :exports results :results none
  (defun my-custom-filters/export-footnote-as-annotation (text backend info)
    (cond ((and (org-export-derived-backend-p backend 'latex)
                (string-match-p "!annot" text))
           (replace-regexp-in-string "\\\\footnote{\s*!annot\s*"
          ((and (org-export-derived-backend-p backend 'odt)
                (string-match-p "!annot" text))
             (insert text)
             (let* ((from (save-excursion
                            (goto-char (point-min))
                            (re-search-forward "!annot" nil t)
                    (to (save-excursion
                          (goto-char from)
                          (re-search-forward "</text:p>" nil t)
                          (- (point) 9)))
                    (contents (buffer-substring-no-properties from to)))
               (delete-region (point-min) (point-max))
               (insert (concat
                        "<office:annotation loext:resolved=\"false\"><dc:creator>"
                        (car (plist-get info :author))
                        ;; date in iso format
                        (org-odt--format-timestamp (plist-get info :date) nil t)
                        "</dc:date><text:p text:style-name=\"P5\"><text:span text:style-name=\"T1\">"
                        "</text:span></text:p></office:annotation> "))
               (setq text (buffer-string)))))))


Lorem[fn:1] ipsum dolor sit amet,

[fn:1] !annot This note will be exported as an annotation...

And this other filter does not export the notes that start with the
string "!noannot" (although it could be merged with the previous

#+BIND: org-export-filter-footnote-reference-functions (my-custom-filters/disable-footnote-as-annotation)
#+begin_src emacs-lisp :exports results :results none
  (defun my-custom-filters/disable-footnote-as-annotation (text backend info)
    (cond ((and (org-export-derived-backend-p backend 'latex)
                (string-match-p "!noannot" text))
           (replace-regexp-in-string ".+"
          ((and (org-export-derived-backend-p backend 'odt)
                (string-match-p "!noannot" text))
           (replace-regexp-in-string ".+"

Best regards,

Juan Manuel
