Basically I have two lists (glossary and acronyms) that i want to merge into one section only, something like (List of terms AND acronyms)

    Please provide a minimum working example showing what you are doing now, and a description of how that differs from what you want to do. In particular, how are you building the glossary and acronym lists? – Willie Wong Feb 22 '13 at 11:39

  • I'm building it using \printglossaries, the standard way, and it's printing in one page the glossary and the next page the acronyms, sorry for not posting the code but it's a bit fuzzy – napb Feb 22 '13 at 11:57

    Do you want to merge the two lists into a single list? In which case just omit the acronym package option. (I assume you're using the glossaries package since you have \printglossaries.) Or do you want two sections within a chapter? In which case use the section package option. To create a minimal working example, start with minimalgls.tex and replace the class with the one you're using. – Nicola Talbot Mar 8 '13 at 8:58

You can use the section package option to change the sectioning command used by the glossaries. For example:

\documentclass{book}

\usepackage[acronym,section]{glossaries}

\makeglossaries

\newglossaryentry{sample}{name={sample},
description={a sample entry}}

\newacronym{aca}{aca}{a contrived acronym}

\begin{document}
\chapter{Sample}
A \gls{sample} entry and \gls{aca}. Second use: \gls{aca}.

Plurals: \glspl{sample}. Reset acronym\glsreset{aca}.
First use: \glspl{aca}. Second use: \glspl{aca}.

\chapter*{List of Terms and Acronyms}
\printglossaries
\end{document}

Result:

Or you can just combine the main glossary with the list of acronyms by removing the acronym package option:

\documentclass{book}

\usepackage{glossaries}

\makeglossaries

\newglossaryentry{sample}{name={sample},
description={a sample entry}}

\newacronym{aca}{aca}{a contrived acronym}

\begin{document}
\chapter{Sample}
A \gls{sample} entry and \gls{aca}. Second use: \gls{aca}.

Plurals: \glspl{sample}. Reset acronym\glsreset{aca}.
First use: \glspl{aca}. Second use: \glspl{aca}.

\printglossary[title={List of Terms and Acronyms}]
\end{document}

Result:
