There’s a question about how to get “LaTeX” symbol in a document, but the answer does not include LaTeX2e. Searching for “LaTeX2e”, “LaTeX2e lettering” or “LaTeX2e writing” didn’t yield the answer, and neither did trying out the commands \LaTeX2 and \LaTeX2e.

How to set LaTeX2e (and while we’re at it: LaTeX3) in a document?

    You can use use \LaTeXe (too short to post it as answer). For LaTeX3 use \LaTeX3. – TeXnician May 16 '18 at 15:14
  • Amazing. I tried \LaTeX2 and \LaTeX2e but didn’t think of \LaTeXe. – Philipp May 16 '18 at 15:16
  • @TeXnician Since it is a valid answer you should. – gvgramazio May 16 '18 at 15:37
  • @giusva Then I'll have to invent some text (as an answer needs some more characters) ;) – TeXnician May 16 '18 at 15:38
  • Here is an explanation of how it is defined: tex.stackexchange.com/a/80333/121944 – AML May 16 '18 at 15:53

To typeset LaTeX2e use \LaTeXe. This is well documented in source2e:

\LaTeXe The LaTeX2ε logo as proposed by A-W designers.

For LaTeX3 simply use \LaTeX3.

    Maybe they should add the lipsum command for answer. :D – gvgramazio May 16 '18 at 15:41
