I'm using the acro package to manage a list of abbreviations. I have specified extra and cite values for some of these. Is there a simple way of using these in the text in the same way as \acl for the long property, and so on?

    Welcome to TeX.SX! Please help us (and also you) and add a minimal working example (MWE), that illustrates your problem. Reproducing the problem and finding out what the issue is will be much easier when we see compilable code, starting with \documentclass and ending with \end{document}. – Bobyandbob Aug 14 '17 at 20:31

It is easily possible to define suitable commands for this completely analogous to the existing commands, see section 11 of the current manual (v2.7c). One command you need, \acro_cite:n unfortunately is not documented, yet.


  short = xx,
  long  = description,
  extra = bla ,
  cite  = yy

\NewAcroCommand \acextra { \acro_extra:n {#1} }
\NewAcroCommand \accite
    \keys_set:nn {acro} { cite-connect = }
    \acro_cite:n {#1}


\ac{foo} \par
\acextra{foo} \par
