You need to use the command for adding new entries with long descriptions so that the paragraph breaks do not cause errors. To do this, you need to move your definitions into the preamble or to load them from an external file in the preamble. For example, the following modifies \dict to use the long entry command and then defines the definitions in the ...

makeindex treats cross-references as a location with a particular format where, typically, the formatting command (\glsseeformat in this case) disregards the location. If this doesn't suit your requirements, you can store your cross-references in one of the user keys instead of using the see key. You then need to write a glossary style that uses this ...

I can't help with the first part of your question as I think that's more appropriate for a design site, but I can answer the second part, how to automatically implement your chosen design in glossaries. The plural suffix used by acronyms is given by \acrpluralsuffix. The smallcaps acronym styles (such as long-sc-short) redefine this as: ...

Without a minimal working example (MWE) this is just guesswork, but as you mentioned that you have defined acronyms and they are behaving as expected, I suspect you have used the acronym package option, like this: \usepackage[acronym]{glossaries} This creates two glossaries. The default main glossary and the acronym glossary. In this case, any acronyms ...

You need a fairly up-to-date version of glossaries for this to work. (I think at least v4.0. The current version is 4.09.) \documentclass{scrbook} \usepackage[acronyms]{glossaries} \makeglossaries \setacronymstyle{long-short-desc} \newglossaryentry{word}{name={word},description={def. 1}} \newglossaryentry{other}{name={other},description={def. 2}} ...

You can use the user keys to store additional information. For example: \documentclass[12pt,BCOR=15mm]{scrbook} \usepackage[utf8]{inputenc} \usepackage[T1]{fontenc} \usepackage[ngerman]{babel} \usepackage{hyperref} \usepackage[xindy,nonumberlist]{glossaries} \GlsSetXdyCodePage{duden-utf8} \makeglossaries \newglossaryentry{glossaries} { name=Glossaries, ...

First, the spacing should be set using the setspace package rather than altering \baselineskip. You can then switch between double-spacing for the main part of the document and single-spacing for the list of acronyms using \doublespacing and \singlespacing. To illustrate this, the example below uses the lipsum package to provide some dummy text. Remember to ...

In order to get the glossaries into the document, this setup requires the external tool makeglossaries and for the acronyms the \printacronyms command: \documentclass[10pt]{memoir} \usepackage[acronym,toc]{glossaries} %%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%% \newglossary[slg]{symbols}{sym}{sbl}{List of Symbols} \makeglossaries % The following definitions will go in ...

If you upgrade to the latest version of glossaries (v4.09 at time of writing), you can hook into the mechanism that sets the default value of the hyper key when using an entry. Here's a simple example that just disables the hyperlink for a specific entry (ut): \documentclass{article} \usepackage[colorlinks]{hyperref} \usepackage{glossaries} ...

The see key puts the cross-reference in the location list (this is how both makeindex and xindy behave), so if you suppress the location list (using the nonumberlist option) this will also suppress the cross-reference. You can use the seeautonumberlist package option (with nonumberlist) to show the location list for just the entries that have the see key, ...
