Hi Alan,

My org manuscript has cross references like this: see
[[id:4c473c51-b484-4a29-8fe7-118d8084a6f8][Limitations Acts]]

Exporting to LaTeX currently gives me:  see
\hyperref[sec-4-3]{Limitations Acts}

What I would like is: \ref{sec-4-3} since I am trying to end up with a
Word file for an editor that will be (ultimately) a printed book.

I'm sure this is a simple variable somewhere, but I'm frustrated trying
to find it.
I think you have two choices.  The first is to remove the description
from the link, leaving just:


Sadly, this is not very informative to look at.

The other is to use an export filter like the following to convert the
exporter’s output to the desired format:

#+BEGIN_SRC emacs-lisp
   (defun awe-org-latex-filter-section-links (string backend plist)
       (if (and (org-export-derived-backend-p backend 'latex)
                (string-match "\\\\hyperref\\[\\(sec-.*?\\)\\]" string))
           (let ((end-space (if (string-match-p " \\'" string) " " "")))
             (concat (format "\\ref{%s}" (match-string 1 string))
(add-to-list 'org-export-filter-link-functions #'awe-org-latex-filter-section-links)

Hope this helps,
Hi Aaron,
I'm adding the reply to the list.

It helps immensely. I'll give the filter a try later this weekend. Thanks for your help!


I'm having some trouble with this: when I try to evaluate the (add-to-list ..., I get a message:
Symbol's value as variable is void: org-export-filter-link-functions

Emacs: 24.3.1

Org-mode version 8.2.6 (release_8.2.6-958-g7c8559 @ /home/alant/.emacs.d/org-mode/lisp/)

Any help appreciated.
