I use the acronym package for my acronyms. Is there a way to make the acronyms non italic in the Acronym List itself but use them in an italic form in the text? Most of the time it works with \textit{\acs{XY}} but when I have a subscript in the acronym I don't want the subscript to be italic. For example in the code below I want to link Mint to the acronym list, "Min" should be italic and the subcript "t" non italic. How can I do that?

  \documentclass[oneside, english, 12pt]{book}
  \usepackage{acronym}
  \begin{document}

  \begin{acronym}
  \acro{Mint} [Min\textsubscript{t}]{Position of Minimum}
  \end{acronym}

   'Min' should be italic and the subscript 't' nonitalic.
    And the whole word linked to the acronym list \textit{\acs{Mint}}


  \end{document}
  • And you want it to be bold in the first list of acronyms? – egreg Mar 22 '16 at 18:46

Is this what you seek? If so, I would note it was accomplished by explicitly enclosing the subscript text in a \textup{}.

  \documentclass[oneside, english, 12pt]{book}
  \usepackage{acronym}
  \begin{document}

  \begin{acronym}
  \acro{Mint} [Min\textsubscript{\textup{t}}]{Position of Minimum}
  \end{acronym}

   'Min' should be italic and the subscript 't' nonitalic.
    And the whole word linked to the acronym list \textit{\acs{Mint}}


  \end{document}
