If I comment out the \usepackage{microtype} line then everything works
fine. I am a casual user of latex so I don't really know what the
comment above about scalable fonts is getting at. Perhaps I can set
my docs up to do something different in terms of fonts to make this
just work.

Any ideas?


Hi Mark,

Removing microtype is probably the easiest solution. It performs some
sophisticated micro-typographic adjustments that are typically found in
published material. The LaTeX world got on fine without them for years
and the casual LaTeX user can still do so. AFAIK, it is not necessary
for the Org-mode LaTeX exporter.

All the best,


I did just that and haven't seen any noticeable degradation in quality.
