I want to get a list of abbreviations where the acronyms have a hyperlink to the list. As far as I understood, the acro package should work with hyperref and do what I want. Unfortunately, my example is not working as I expected. Can anyone tell me how to get a list of abbreviations with working hyperlinks (at best, using the acro package)?


short = CD ,
long = compact disc

In order to link the acronym to its entry in the list of acronyms, the acro package offers to make-list boolean when used in combination with the hyperref package. Initially, it is set fo false which is why you don't get the hyperlinks in your document.

Thus, adding


to your preamble will result in the expected hyperlinks.
