I want to use the glossaries package to create several glossaries—one actual glossary that gives definitions of terms, with page cross-references to where they are defined in the body of the document; and a second list of notation (symbols and their meanings), also with page cross-references to where they are defined in the body of the document.

However, for each entry in one of those glossaries, I do not want to make the corresponding text/symbols in the body of the document a link to the entry in the glossary. Just the opposite! All links are to be in the glossaries, which point back to the text/symbols in the body of the document.

In the docs for glossaries, I only find the \gls command, which does just the opposite of what I want.

(I am also using hyperref.)

How to do it?

Thanks to Disable hyperlinks in some entries for glossaries I finally discovered the solution, which is well-buried in glossaries-user.pdf (page 54, under option "hyperfirst"):

Use the starred form \gls* to suppress putting a link on its argument in the body of the text.

Also, the document glossaries begin.pdf indicates explicitly on page 19 a way to disable globally all such links within the body of the text: include in the preamble the command:

\glsdisablehyper
