# unbold acronyms in the list

How do I unbold the acronyms from the list of acronyms? I am using the acronym package. I need to produce the list of acronyms but without bold acronyms next to their full forms.

• Redefine \acsfont as described in the documentation? (texdoc acronym) – musarithmia Dec 16 '14 at 16:55

You can redefine the macro \aclabelfont. It's default definition is

\newcommand*\aclabelfont[1]{\textbf{\acsfont{#1}}}


The naive redefinition just leaving \textbf{} away, i.e.,

\renewcommand*\aclabelfont[1]{\acsfont{#1}}


might or might not work: it works if you use the optional argument of the acronym environment like this

\begin{acronym}[foo]
\acro{foo}{bar}
\end{acronym}


but doesn't work if you don't use it

\begin{acronym}
\acro{foo}{bar}
\end{acronym}


The acronym package uses different lists for both cases. In the second case it uses a description list which also bolds its items. So if you don't want to change all description? lists a redefinition that works for both cases would be

\renewcommand*\aclabelfont[1]{\textnormal{\acsfont{#1}}}
