In the previous article, I talked about writing technical documentation using Emacs. In this article let’s explore how to use Emacs for presentation.

In Emacs, there are multiple packages available for doing presentations.


Let’s begin by setting up the document template. Press C-c C-e and you should see the following screen.

Org Export Dispatcher

Press # and select the default template.

Available Templates

With the headers generated, add some content for the presentation. E.g.

#+options: ':nil *:t -:t ::t <:t H:3 \n:nil ^:t arch:headline
#+options: author:t broken-links:nil c:nil creator:nil
#+options: d:(not "LOGBOOK") date:t e:t email:nil f:t inline:t
