I would like to add a greek sign to my abbreviations with the acro package, somehow like this:

\DeclareAcronym{MCP-1}{
  short = MCP-1 \alpha ,
  long  = Monocyte Chemoattractant Protein-1 ,
  class = abbrev
}

However this creates only errors. I have tried all different kinds of writing greek letters, but all do not work. Does anybody have a answer for this question?

  • $\alpha$, perhaps? – egreg Jun 17 '18 at 12:40
  • It probably should be short = MCP-1~$\alpha$ – clemens Jun 17 '18 at 13:55

    This shows alpha in the abbreviation list but unfortunately alpha is - unlike the other letters in the abbreviation - not printed bold. – K mit K Jun 17 '18 at 16:11

This can be done with the inclusion of the textgreek package and using \textalpha to insert an alpha symbol.

MWE

\documentclass[12pt]{article}

\usepackage{acro}
\usepackage{textgreek}

\DeclareAcronym{MCP-1}{
  short = MCP-1 \textalpha,
  long  = Monocyte Chemoattractant Protein-1 ,
  class = abbrev
}

\begin{document}

\newpage
\printacronyms[include-classes=abbrev,name=Abbreviations]
\thispagestyle{empty}
\ac{MCP-1}
\end{document}

This will result in the following Abbreviation list: Output of MWE
