This my latex code that i used :

\documentclass{report}

\usepackage{graphicx}
\usepackage[colorlinks]{hyperref}
 \usepackage[savewrites,nopostdot,toc,acronym,symbols]{glossaries}
\usepackage{glossary-mcols}
\usepackage{glossary-longragged}


\newacronym{CICS}{CICS}{Customer Information Control System}
\newacronym{EHDM}{EHDM}{Enhanced Hierarchical Development Methodology}
\newacronym{ASF}{ASF}{Algebraic Specification Formalism}
\newacronym{ProCos}{ProCos}{Provably Correct Systems}
\newacronym{HOL}{HOL}{Higher Order Logic}
\newacronym{LOTOS}{LOTOS}{Language Of Temporal Ordering Specification}
\newacronym{CCS}{CCS}{Calculus of Communicating Systems}
\newacronym{CSP}{CSP}{Communicating Sequential Processes}
\newacronym{RAISE}{RAISE}{Rigorous Approach to Industrial Software Engineering}
\newacronym{VDM}{VDM}{Vienna Development Method }
\makeglossaries
\begin{document}
\tableofcontents
\chapter{Sample}
This is a sample document that uses the dummy glossary entries
 supplied with the glossaries bundle for testing.
\gls{ASF} \gls{CICS}
 Here are all the entries (including acronyms):

\gls{ASF} \gls{CICS} \gls{CSP} \gls{ProCos}
\gls{VDM} \gls{RAISE} \gls{CCS} \gls{ASF}
\gls{HOL} \gls{EHDM}
 \printglossary[type=acronym,style=super]

 \end{document} 

and my output result

enter image description here

Could you please help me ?

As @Piet van Oostrum commented, the solution would be to use nogroupskip option in the \usepackage{glossaries}.

Here is my MWE

\documentclass{report}

\usepackage{graphicx}
\usepackage[colorlinks]{hyperref}
\usepackage[savewrites,nopostdot,toc,acronym,symbols,nogroupskip]{glossaries}
%\usepackage{glossary-mcols}
%\usepackage{glossary-longragged}  These are redundant
\makeglossaries % it's better practice to have this before the acronyms and gls definitions

\newacronym{CICS}{CICS}{Customer Information Control System}
\newacronym{EHDM}{EHDM}{Enhanced Hierarchical Development Methodology}
\newacronym{ASF}{ASF}{Algebraic Specification Formalism}
\newacronym{ProCos}{ProCos}{Provably Correct Systems}
\newacronym{HOL}{HOL}{Higher Order Logic}
\newacronym{LOTOS}{LOTOS}{Language Of Temporal Ordering Specification}
\newacronym{CCS}{CCS}{Calculus of Communicating Systems}
\newacronym{CSP}{CSP}{Communicating Sequential Processes}
\newacronym{RAISE}{RAISE}{Rigorous Approach to Industrial Software Engineering}
\newacronym{VDM}{VDM}{Vienna Development Method }

\begin{document}
    \tableofcontents
    \chapter{Sample}
    This is a sample document that uses the dummy glossary entries
    supplied with the glossaries bundle for testing.
    \gls{ASF} \gls{CICS}
    Here are all the entries (including acronyms):

    \gls{ASF} \gls{CICS} \gls{CSP} \gls{ProCos}
    \gls{VDM} \gls{RAISE} \gls{CCS} \gls{ASF}
    \gls{HOL} \gls{EHDM}
    \printglossary[type=acronym,style=super]

\end{document} 

notice I commented out \usepackage{glossary-mcols} and \usepackage{glossary-longragged}. In addition, I moved \makeglossaries to before the acronym (and glossaries) definition

  • this solution works perfectly thanks , but i don't have enough space between acronyms and their definitions , how can I do it ?? @Elad Den – Nousa Nov 19 '16 at 15:02
  • Usually I would advise you to start a new question about this, as this site is supposed to provide questions and answers to other people who ran into the same type of problem. In this case, however, the question has been asked and also answered. tex.stackexchange.com/a/21667/90297 This answer is for the long style and not the super but I think it should also work in your case. Try to do it, if you do not succeed, start a new question. Good luck ! – Elad Den Nov 20 '16 at 7:24
