I use acro package for acronyms and \ac{id} through my text. However, it does not show the acronym explicitly in the first use, it is always abbreviated.

I am using TeXstudio 2.10.8 on linux 16.04.

How can I solve it?

Edit: My piece of code: (I put all the included libraries in case you see some incompatibilities)

\usepackage{tabularx} % extra features for tabular environment
\usepackage{amsmath}  % improve math presentation
\usepackage{graphicx} % takes care of graphic including machinery
\usepackage[margin=1in,letterpaper]{geometry} % decreases margins
\usepackage{cite} % takes care of citations
\usepackage[final]{hyperref} % adds hyper links inside the generated pdf file
\usepackage{xcolor} %better colors


\usepackage[utf8]{inputenc} %National characters

    colorlinks=true,       % false: boxed links; true: colored links
    linkcolor=blue,        % color of internal links
    citecolor=blue,        % color of links to bibliography
    filecolor=magenta,     % color of file links


    short = TEST ,
    long  = Example Abbreviation for Test ,
    class = abbrev

    \title{\textbf{A Title}}
    \author{Submitted by: Me}



        Some text related to my abbreviation \ac{test}.




And the output shows that abbreviation library works as it should be:

    I don't use acro but doesn't \acsetup{first-style=short} make the first use only show the short form? – Nicola Talbot Nov 23 '18 at 11:54
