LaTeX2e unofficial reference manual (December 2020)

This is a reference manual for LaTeX. If you want a tutorial, please see this list.

Our goal is to document all (non-private) LaTeX commands. See below for the Table of Contents. This version of the manual has separate web pages for each section or subsection. It's also available in a single page version and as pdf.

Your comments and contributions, including bug reports, are very welcome. Our project page has more information, including license information. We also provide information on how you can mirror this manual, and contribute to it.

This document is not official. It has not been reviewed by the LaTeX maintainers.

A note about links. Some characters are troublesome on the web. One such character is backslash and so our page for the \rule command is named _005crule.html. (the hexadecimal representation of backslash is 005c). You may find easier to remember our alternative page names, in this case bs-rule.html. These alternatives replace space with a dash, `-', replace backslash with `bs' and a dash, replace @ with `at' and a dash, and replace & with `and' and a dash. For instance, you can reach the page describing \@startsection with bs-at-startsection.html.
