using the following code I am not able to get a glossary printed out in the appendix:

\documentclass[a4paper,  11pt]{article}
\renewcommand{\baselinestretch}{1.2}
\usepackage[titletoc,title]{appendix}
\usepackage{fancyhdr}
\usepackage[hidelinks]{hyperref}%
\usepackage[section,numberedsection, acronym, toc]{glossaries}
\newacronym{eu}{EU}{European Union}
\makeglossaries
\begin{document}
It follows that the European Economic Integration denotes the  elimination of economic frontiers in Europe, referring to the integration process following the second world war, concerning mainly  the \acrfull{eu}.
\begin{appendices}
\chead{{\footnotesize Appendix A}}
\fancypagestyle{FooBar}
\afterpage{\cfoot{\thepage}}
\section{} \label{Appendix1}
\printglossary[title={Custom Title}]
\end{appendices}
\end{document}

The acronym works in the main body of the document, but does not prin in the appendix. What is wrong?

EDIT

after googling and reading through the glossaries documentation, it is probable that to print glossaries I need to use windows prompt and type the makeindex command . command. however, i am first-time user of windows prompt so does someone have a "for dummies" explanation what exactly to type there and how to link the folder containing my thesis there?

  • Your example misses \usepackage{fancyhdr} – user31729 Aug 10 '15 at 22:17

Either try to use \printacronyms instead of \printglossary or \printglossary[type=acronym] (+ some additional options)

\documentclass[a4paper,  11pt]{article}
\renewcommand{\baselinestretch}{1.2}
\usepackage{fancyhdr}
\usepackage[titletoc,title]{appendix}
\usepackage[hidelinks]{hyperref}%
\usepackage[section,numberedsection, acronym, toc]{glossaries}
\newacronym{eu}{EU}{European Union}
\makeglossaries
\begin{document}
It follows that the European Economic Integration denotes the  elimination of economic frontiers in Europe, referring to the integration process following the second world war, concerning mainly  the \acrfull{eu}.
\begin{appendices}
\chead{{\footnotesize Appendix A}}
\fancypagestyle{FooBar}
\afterpage{\cfoot{\thepage}}
\section{} \label{Appendix1}
% \printglossary[title={Custom Title}]

\printacronyms[title={Custom Title}]
\end{appendices}
\end{document}

  • Thanks very much for your response, but unfortunately it did not help :/ might be because of a conflict with another package? – Martin Hulényi Aug 13 '15 at 15:33
  • @MartinHulényi: Well, I used the packages from your example, so what should I say about any other package you use in addition. Perhaps you should update your TeX distribution as well – user31729 Aug 13 '15 at 17:27
  • I think that I need to use prompt with the command makindex (See edit above) – Martin Hulényi Aug 17 '15 at 10:31
  • That's well documented in the manual – user31729 Aug 17 '15 at 17:32
