I can load additional LaTeX packages with the EXTRA_PACKAGES config entry, like


resulting in \usepackage{xy}

But what I need to be able to do is to provide additional parameters to these packages, like


in my case (xy really lacks features without this option, but I need it to draw diagrams). As for now, this only seems to be possible with gruesome hacks:

EXTRA_PACKAGES = somethingelse}\n\usepackage[all]{xy

(untested, maybe they get escaped!)

Because latexgen.cpp (line 260) looks like this:

t << "\usepackage{" << s << "}\n";

There seems to be no official way to pass package parameters. So my request is, to include some way to pass package parameters :)

Thanks in advance

What works for me:

doxygen} \usepackage[export]{adjustbox

Alternatice might be an area in the doxyfile where we could add arbitrary text to be inserted before the \begin{document}
