I'm using the acro (NOT acronym) package (v2.5) for a list of symbols. Now, if the short form is rather long it is 'shifted' into the corresponding long form when using \printacronyms. Further, if the acronym appears on several pages, the corresponding page numbers will be written over the page instead of using a linebreak.

The following code snippet illustrates this problem:


  short = \ensuremath{\pi \in \mathbb{R}},
  alt = \ensuremath{\pi},
  long = Strange number,
  class = nomencl

  short = \ensuremath{{\cal{P}} = \{\boldsymbol{x}\}, \boldsymbol{x} \in \mathbb{R}^3},
  alt = \ensuremath{{\cal{P}}},
  long = A simple set of points,
  class = nomencl


\forloop{ct}{1}{\value{ct} < 20}%

  hyperref = true,
  list-style   = lof,
  list-heading = subsubsection*,
  page-style = plain,
\printacronyms[include-classes=nomencl,name=Nomenclature, sort=false]



Any ideas how to address this problem?

  • There is no easy solution. list-style = toc and pages = first is probably the best you can do. (Or another list style altogether) – clemens Jun 5 '16 at 18:57
  • Unfortunately, neither list-style = toc in combination with pages = first nor a different list style is an option for me. Do you know if the acronym package supports these styles? – jawa Jun 6 '16 at 16:44
  • As far as I know the acronym package only has a list style (meaning using a LaTeX list like description). – clemens Jun 6 '16 at 19:39
