There's a command/option that I can put in my orgmode file that causes only headlines that are explicitly tagged with :export: get exported. What is it?

1 Answer 1


It would appear that

#+SELECT_TAGS: export

should do what you have in mind. Conversely if you want to exclude certain tags from being exported, you can use

#+EXCLUDE_TAGS: noexport

For lots of other options to be applied during the export you can take a look at the org-mode manual at http://orgmode.org/org.html#Export-settings

Does this help?

  • Yes, I messed up on the syntax -- I had put INCLUDE_TAGS: export in my #+OPTIONS line.
