# Cannot see the acronyms list

I ma using a template in overleaf and I have this chapter for achronyms:

\chapter{List of acronyms}

{\small
\begin{acronym}[XXXXXXXX]
\Acro{GNU}     {\acs{GNU} is Not Unix}
\acro{OO}      {Orientación a Objetos}
\acro{RPC}     {Remote Procedure Call}
\acro{BDD}     {Behaviour Driven Development}
\end{acronym}
}


The problem is that in the results I see only the title of the chapter and a blank page. Am I missing something here?

This works for me:

\documentclass{report}
\usepackage{acronym}

\begin{document}
\chapter{List of acronyms}

{\small
\begin{acronym}[XXXXXXXX]
\acro{GNU} {\acs{GNU} is Not Unix}
\acro{OO}  {Orientación a Objetos}
\acro{RPC} {Remote Procedure Call}
\acro{BDD} {Behaviour Driven Development}
\end{acronym}
}
\end{document}


Notice that I simply replaced \Acro{GNU} by \acro{GNU}.

• hmm amazingly on compiling a second times the bold GNU! becomes non-bold GNU. But I simply don't know what \acs stands for... – user4686 Nov 14 '18 at 21:36
• what is the form of definition with square brackets here \acs[linebreak penalty]{acronym} for examples? and what is this here [XXXXXXXX] – S.EB Jun 25 at 10:25
\documentclass{report}
\usepackage{acronym}

\begin{document}
\chapter{List of acronyms}

{\small
\begin{acronym}[XXXXXXXX]
\acro{GNU} {\acs{GNU} is Not Unix}

\acro{RPC} {Remote Procedure Call}
\acro{BDD} {Behaviour Driven Development}
\end{acronym}
}
\end{document}

• Welcome to TeX.SE. You can highlight your code and click {} to format it correctly. It would also help to identify what you changed to solve the problem. Was it just \Acro{GNU} becoming \acro{GNU}? Did you make a different change from the other answer that's a year older? – Teepeemm Feb 11 at 19:41
• Thanks for posting, but this isn't really an answer; it's just some code. Say what you're doing and why it works, so this will be useful to everyone. – dgoodmaniii Feb 11 at 21:36
