I am trying to set :scale 2.0 in org-format-latex-options with the follows line in my .emacs file:

(plist-put org-format-latex-options :scale 2.0)

However I get the error:

Symbol's value as variable is void: org-format-latex-options

I am following the advice from these posts: post one and post two. Can someone please explain what is going wrong and how to fix it?

    You probably need to do this after you load org. See if you have (require 'org) in your init file: if so, add the plist-put line after it. Or you can say: (eval-after-load 'org (plist-put ....)) which will DTRT.
