i'm having trouble with my glossaries library.

I declare the acronym DA as \newacronym{DA}{DA}{Demandes d'Achats} but when i write émission des \gls{DA} et it give me the following result in the glossary and in the text too. (I need a quick answer)

Demandandes d'Achats (DA)

  • What are you expecting to see? I imagine \gls{DA} gives the full name followed by the acronym on the first usage and just prints DA on future usages. Perhaps you want Glossaries Package: No long form the first time using an acronym

  • alright but it is supoposed to print "Demandes d'Achat" and not "Demandandes d'Achat"

  • welcome to tex.sx. please provide a small example that can be compiled, that shows the problem. to help, we need something we can cut and paste to be able to experiment. Sep 15, 2016 at 15:47
  • Ah, I hadn't noticed that! Can you post an MWE which we can use to replicate this? I.e. something compilable running from \documentclass to \end{document}

    Without a MWE this is just guesswork, but do you have a file with the extension .glsdefs? If you do, it's possible you might have had a typo that you fixed but the original misspelling is still in the .glsdefs file. In which case, delete the .glsdefs file and retry. Sep 15, 2016 at 18:17

Without an MWE it's hard to confirm, but I would suspect you have a typo somewhere. I get the expected result:


% Abbreviations

\newacronym{DA}{DA}{Demandes d'Achats}



% Use the acronyms
\'{e}mission des \gls{DA} et



émission des Demandes d'Achats (DA) et
