I'm facing this problem that when I include some LaTeX specific attributes for my image, then the image doesn't display inside org-mode (although it is displayed fine in my exported LaTeX PDF).

For example, if I include an image like this, the image stop showing inside org-mode:

#+ATTR_LATEX: :width 7cm

However if I remove that LaTeX attribute, then it is displaying fine inside org-mode.


Try adding:

+ATTR_ORG: :width 300

below the #+ATTR_LATEX: :width 7cm line.

I guess org is showing your image scaled to 7 pixels wide, and it is invisible.

  • Thanks. This works absolutely fine. Except that I had to add the suggested attribute +ATTR_ORG: :width 300 BEFORE the LaTeX attribute #+ATTR_LATEX: :width 7cm. Then only it was working. Don't know why it was behaving this way. Could be some problem with my setup. – shivams Dec 10 '16 at 4:20
  • ok, I got it backwards. It is not a problem with your setup, org must take the first one, and it uses a regexp to get the width in pixels. it doesn't have any scaling or recognition of units. – John Kitchin Dec 10 '16 at 15:26
