On using an image link as,


in org-mode, emacs doesn't toggle the inline image display. org-toggle-inline-images works well on start-up. I run a presentation using M-x epresent-run epresent and come back to edit mode from the presentation mode by pressing q. Then the image display stops toggling.

What I get after quitting epresent-mode:


What I want:

This behavior is seen after I get into presentation mode using epresent and come back to edit mode by pressing q.

    This isn't the default behavior. Look into your init file for mentions of either org-toggle-inline-images (newer Org) or org-toggle-iimage-in-org (older Org). Also see this link: orgmode.org/worg/org-configs/org-config-examples.html - this is probably how you get it in the first place.

    I think that toggling depends on some text property which Org puts in this kind of links. Probably presentation mode wipes all such properties. I'd write to epresent maintainers about the problem. They'd be the ones to know how to work around it.

  • Yes, it looks like a bug to be filed on epresent-mode.

To toggle images, do either:

C-c C-x C-v


M-x org-toggle-inline-images

To do this in #+OPTIONS, it looks like you can set it in the #+STARTUP: https://orgmode.org/manual/In_002dbuffer-Settings.html - see inlineimages and noinlineimages

  • This is not a real answer to the question of the connection between epresent and org-mode.
