# Why the document cannot print acronyms and glossaries

I have saved glossaries and acronyms in Glossay.tex file and I include in the latex main thesis document using \input{Appendices/Glossary.tex}. I have followed the template in overleaf, however, the document does not show the acronym list and glossaries

\usepackage[acronym]{glossaries} % for Glossary and definitions
\makeglossaries

\input{Appendices/Glossary.tex}

\begin{document}
.....
....
...
%% ----------------------------------------------------------------
\clearpage

\printglossary[type=\acronymtype]
%\input{Appendices/Glossary}
\printglossary

% Now begin the Appendices, including them as separate files

\appendix % Cue to tell LaTeX that the following 'chapters' are Appendices

%\input{Appendices/AppendixA}   % Appendix Title
%\input{Appendices/Glossary.tex}
%\input{Appendices/AppendixB} % Appendix Title

\backmatter
\label{Bibliography}
\bibliographystyle{unsrtnat}  % Use the "unsrtnat" BibTeX style for formatting the Bibliography
\bibliography{mybib}  % The references (bibliography) information are stored in the file named "Bibliography.bib"

\end{document}


what could be the reason?

The entries in the Glossary.tex the file looks like this:

\newacronym{svm}{SVM}{support vector machine}
\newacronym{crf}{CRFs}{conditional random fields}

• In your current MWE you are not using any of the acronyms with \gls or similar commands, is that the issue you are seeing? Maybe you make a complete MWE that actually shows the complete commands in one file? Jun 24 '20 at 15:54
• @TobiBS I do not have any glossary entry, it is all acronyms. That is why there is no \gls command. If you have a look on acronyms in this link it has similar pattern as mine. but I am not sure why it is not showing the list of acronyms...

• It doesn‘t matter if you define acronyms or glossary entries, \gls can be used for both of them. But this is why I wrote or similar: If you use \acs that‘s fine, too. But if you don‘t acces any of the acronyms, it will never show up in the list of acronyms. Jun 25 '20 at 6:06
