I'm a chartered mathematician, computer scientist and book production editor. I have a number of packages on CTAN, and I write LaTeX books, illustrated children's books and crime fiction. I have a FAQ, a bug tracker and a feature request tracker for my LaTeX packages and a list of LaTeX resources.

comment makeglossaries doesn't work
After you made the changes, did the rerun of makeglossaries display any error messages? Are there any messages in the .glg file? Is the time stamp on the .gls file more recent than the time stamp on the .glo file? Does the .glo file contain the changes that you made? (Please can you trim down your example code to a proper minimal working example (MWE). There's a lot of code there that's not relevant.)

comment Hyphenation in nomenclature
@LaRiFaRi Okay, I'll write an answer, but I think this question ought to state that it's a follow-up to the other question.

comment Hyphenation in nomenclature
@LaRiFaRi I'm not sure it is a duplicate since the other question wasn't specifically about nomencl (although one of the answers covers it).

comment Hyphenation in nomenclature
@LaRiFaRi If "- expands to something that doesn't contain a double-quote character then it won't bother makeindex. I don't know if nomencl tries to perform any checks for makeindex characters. (glossaries does, but the substitutions only work if the definitions are made in the preamble before those characters are made active by babel. Any definitions made in the document environment may work if the problematic characters aren't in the label or sort key.)

comment Hyphenation in nomenclature
I suspect it's because " is a makeindex special character. You may need to do "" to escape it or use a different command to do the manual hyphenation.

comment LaTeX is not rebuilding my .bbl file, hence giving message Citation 'eloynew2008' on page 1 undefined
The final line in the .blg file will tell you how many errors/warnings were issued. Warning and error messages are usually printed fairly near the start of the file (usually around line 6). Warnings start with Warning-- and errors just have the message without a prefix. There should then be a line which says something like You have used n entries, where n is the number of entries you have cited in your document. There should also be a line with something like Database file #1: foo.bib where foo.bib is the name of the bib file being parsed.

comment Glossary not printed issue on ShareLatex
@user59763 As Stefan suggested, you really need to create a new question. (You can use the "Ask Question" link at the top of the page.) It doesn't sound like your problem is specifically related to ShareLaTeX, so just add a minimal working example (MWE) that illustrates your problem.

comment printglossaries, makeglossaries: (0 entries accepted, 0 rejected)
It's better not to include the extension when you run makeglossaries. If you have multiple glossaries (e.g. if you have used the acronym option), makeglossaries report.glo will only make the main glossary not any of the other glossaries.

comment probsoln's solution environment in beamer documentclass
probsoln only defines the solution environment if it isn't already defined, so you need to undefine \solution and \endsolution before you load probsoln if you want to use probsoln's version.

comment Why does amsmath use fraktur for real and imaginary parts?
I know Unicode came after TeX, but U+211C ℜ is described as "real part", so the notation isn't restricted to TeX.

comment Error using glossaries package trying to compile with makeindex
Tip (not related to the problem): if you use \usepackage[toc]{glossaries} you don't need the \addcontentsline command. Did your document compile okay with latex before you tried to use makeindex?

comment Error using glossaries package trying to compile with makeindex
It would help if you could provide a minimal working example (MWE). The error message says that makeindex can't find the file called Tesis.ist. This could mean that you haven't used \makeglossaries in the preamble.

comment List of glossaries not displaying
I think you may be wanting \newacronym rather than \newglossaryentry, given you have used the acronym option. (In which case, you need an extra argument \newacronym{utc}{utc}{Coordinated Universal Time}.) Also, I recommend you move the definitions to the preamble as in @ChristianHupfer's answer (see Drawbacks With Defining Entries in the Document Environment)

comment Add custom key to display units in glossary with siunitx
@Burcardo You can put \glssetnoexpandfield{unit} before or after \glsaddkey. You just need to make sure it's set before any instance of \newglossaryentry where the expansion needs to be suppressed. The starred version of \glsaddkey forces expansion on for that key even if \glsnoexpandfields is used (but can later be overridden with \glssetnoexpandfield{unit}).
