Hi Gerald,

the LaTeX exporter does indeed have some problems with footnotes in headlines.

I have now fixed it so that the footnote will be preceded by \protect, which already makes things nicer. However, to use the format you propose (which is good LaTeX), Org would have to know which macros exactly work like that. For example, headlines from Org-mode sometimes get transformed into \item blocks, where an optional argument would have completely different effects.

A way out for you would be to add a function to `org-export-latex- final-hook' which would go through, find and fix the corresponding headlines.

If you make a good solutions, please share it - I might want to use it in Org after all.

I tracked down the problem to latex itself, the generated code looks like this:
\section{This is a simple heading \footnote{A footnote }}

But to get a correct table of contents entry when a section title
contains a footnote it should look like this:

\section[This is a simple heading]{This is a simple heading
\footnote{A footnote }}

The solution was not found by me, I took it from

But I don't want to edit the tex-file manually, how can I fix the
renderer? I looked into it but I don't really understand how the
export (and the latex backend) do their work.
