How to make a nomenclature

Postby jaymarcos » Wed Apr 17, 2013 7:38 am

What is the easiest way to make a nomenclature list?

I'm having a hard time making a nomenclature list using \usepackage{nomencl}. I believe I have the idea on how to implement this package, but i always get this error.

  1. "Process started
  2.  
  3. This is makeindex, version 2.15 [TeX Live 2009] (kpathsea + Thai support). Scanning style file /usr/local/texlive/2009/texmf-dist/makeindex/latex/gind.ist.............done (13 attributes redefined, 3 ignored). Scanning input file ThesisReport.idx...done (0 entries accepted, 0 rejected). Nothing written in ThesisReport.ind. Transcript written in ThesisReport.ilg.

Hi,

in order to help you we need to see what you been doing, meaning a working minimal example and how you startet the makeindex-process. Please follow the link, if you don't know how to prepare an MWE.
Additionally, you might want to take a look at the glossaries-package.

Regards
The smart way: Calm down and take a deep breath, read posts and provided links attentively, try to understand and ask if necessary.
