# Reduce line-spacing in acronyms with hyperref

I'm using:

\documentclass[12pt,titlepage]{article}

\usepackage{datatool}
\usepackage[style=altlist,nonumberlist,numberedsection,acronym,toc,xindy]{glossaries}
\makeglossaries
\makeindex

\begin{document}

\printglossaries

blablabla \gls{acronyms} blablabla

\end {document}

Too much space and too much lines, therefore too much pages wasted!

How to get rid of this?

Note that you are using the altlist style when loading glossaries package, which belongs to the 'List Styles' type. These style types use the description environment; moreover with altlist the description starts on the line following the name and that's why you have your acronym printed over two lines.

If you remove style=altlist you get:

Hope this is what you were looking for.

• style=long3col (set as longtable in three columns)
• style=index (similar to an index)
