# Glossary in Latex

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[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}
\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}

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[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}
\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? Aug 13, 2015 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

• I think that I need to use prompt with the command makindex (See edit above) Aug 17, 2015 at 10:31
• That's well documented in the manual
