## Re: [O] LaTex Adjustments for Org-Export

Hi Jeff,

I just saw your question about removing paragraph indent, and adding space between paragraphs. You can do that with the following LaTeX commands:

\setlength{\parskip}{1ex plus 0.5ex minus 0.2ex} %% Add space between paragraphs

\setlength{\parindent}{0pt} %% Do not indent paragraphs

You can put them at the top of your org document like so:

#+LATEX_HEADER: \setlength{\parindent}{0pt} %% Do not indent paragraphs

I hope this helps!

I'm trying to export a .org file to .pdf and although I've gotten past
many formatting hurdles, I am stuck on two problems.

1) How can I redefine, in my org-export-latex-classes variable, the
\section definition, such that it includes \pagebreak?
My reason is that I would like each of my top-level headings to
start on a new page, like a new chapter.

2) How can I change the basic formatting of paragraphs everywhere to

a) omit the leading indent, and
b) have a blank line between paragraphs

This is a test paragraph
of the following kind of thing.
And so is this one.

I want it to look like this:

Thanks for any helpful souls out there.  I'm working on learning LaTeX
but can't see how the various parts of the "article" base class fit
together and how to selectively override them.
