My MikTeX version is: 2.9 My TeXnicCenter version is: 2.02 My document is generated, everything is in their, content, references, but not my abbreviation list, though it did it yesterday and the name abbreviations is written on the page

The file:










\begin{multicols*}{2} % two-column layout for abbreviations
\end{multicols*} % switch back to one column after two-column layout for abbreviations



Among other proteins, Suppressor of cytokine signaling (SOCS)\nomenclature{SOCS}{Suppressor of cytokine signaling} and Protein inhibitor of activated STAT (PIAS)\nomenclature{PIAS}{Protein inhibitor of activated STAT} as inhibitors of the JAK-STAT pathway are dampening IFN and cytokine related signaling.

I already tested instead of makeindex.exe miketex-makeindex.exe, didn't help I tested with bm and tm, no changes.

  • Welcome to TeX.SX! You're example isn't compilable at all and a mess, actually. – user31729 Apr 27 '16 at 12:10
  • The line Scanning input file nomencl.ist...done (0 entries accepted, 75 rejected) suggests the ist file is being treated as an input file. Did you forget the -s switch? – Nicola Talbot Apr 27 '16 at 12:22
  • You've given your list of arguments as nomencl.ist -t "%tm".nlg -o "%tm".nls "%tm".nlo (where you've written the postprocessor information in your question). This list is missing -s at the start of it. The arguments should be -s nomencl.ist -t "%tm".nlg -o "%tm".nls "%tm".nlo – Nicola Talbot Apr 30 '16 at 20:08

Because we do not have a compiling MWE and we do not have your file nomencl.ist I can not test it, but with the following changing in the definition of your output profile for TeXnicCenter it should work.

  • Delete the entry for the postprocessor
  • Add -s nomencl.ist to the command line of MakeIndex

My profile definition in TeXnicCenter:

    I think nomencl.ist is included with the nomencl package. – Nicola Talbot Apr 27 '16 at 14:45
  • Thank you for your comments. My document contains a "header" file with nearly all packages and this file. Both in total have 450 lines, excluding the "real" content in intro file an so on, I have no clue which commands you would need additionally. changing the makeindex line didn't help. – Cleo_beginner Apr 29 '16 at 10:42
