I've tried to define an example to display the list of acronyms. But after the compile step the doc only shows the text without a list of acronyms.


% Load the package

% Generate the glossary


%Term definitions
\newglossaryentry{utc}{name=UTC, description={Coordinated Universal Time}}
\newglossaryentry{adt}{name=ADT, description={Atlantic Daylight Time}}
\newglossaryentry{est}{name=EST, description={Eastern Standard Time}}

% Use the terms
\gls{utc} is 3 hours behind \gls{adt} and 10 hours ahead of \gls{est}.

%Print the glossary


Where is the problem?

  • Have you run makeglossaries --help ? – Fran Feb 24 '16 at 23:53
  • @Fran where can I type this? – yuro Feb 24 '16 at 23:59
  • In the system command prompt, aka MSDOS windows (running cmd in latest Windows versions, if a remember correctly... ) or a Linux terminal. If you file is, said, xyz.tex, the first run pdflatex xyz, then makeglossaries xyz, and pdflatex xyz again. Some LaTeX editors can be configured to help you in this task. – Fran Feb 25 '16 at 0:18
  • @Fran here is the message: $ makeglossaries Thesis.tex makeglossaries version 2.18 (2016-01-24) Don't pass the tex file to makeglossaries: either omit the extension to make all the glossaries, or specify one of the glossary files, e.g. Thesis.tex.glo, to make just that glossary. – yuro Feb 25 '16 at 0:25

    Tip: "omit the extension". Do not type Thesis.tex. Just Thesis . – Fran Feb 25 '16 at 0:27
