Documenting this because I could not find an answer in stack exchange.

A heading such as this breaks during LaTeX export:


Rather than switching to a code-block, and loosing the folding and movement abilities of an org-mode heading, how do you escape the & inline?

  • This seems to be properly escape for LaTeX, at least as of Org version 9.1.14 in Emacs version 25.3.50 (actually Aquamacs 3.5 on a Mac) – Win Dec 17 '18 at 2:01
  • M-x org-version -> Org mode version 9.1.14 (9.1.14-9-g131531-elpaplus @ /Users/.../.emacs.d/elpa/org-plus-contrib-20181203/) and M-x emacs-version -> GNU Emacs 26.1 (build 1, x86_64-apple-darwin18.0.0, Carbon Version 158 AppKit 1671) of 2018-10-01 using emacs-mac port from Mitsuharu Yamamoto. Dunno why it didn't work either, works in text, just not headings. Just wanted to document the workaround. – glallen Dec 17 '18 at 4:54

One solution is to use C-x 8 <RET> or M-x insert-char to select the unicode character. This method works for LuaLaTeX and XeLaTeX when using \usepackage{fontspec}.

Another solution is to use inline code:

* MITRE @@latex: ATT\&CK@@

This works perfectly for LaTeX, but breaks HTML export, as the @@latex: @@ block isn't exported.
