    How are you creating your acronyms? With acronym? With acro? With glossaries? – cgnieder Nov 4 '15 at 7:25

You need to refedine or patch \@acf. The following example replaces the space with dots:


\patchcmd\@acf{\nolinebreak[3] }{\nolinebreak[3]\ldots}{}{}



  \acro{foo}{long description of foo}


enter image description here

Replace \ldots in the above code with whatever space you want.

If you also want to change the appearance in PDF bookmarks you also need to redefine/patch \acfa.
