Trouble with glossary

Postby Pingandpong » Wed Feb 07, 2018 5:57 pm

Hello together,

i am writing my thesis with latex and recieved an template ffrom my university.
The glossarie entrys are defined in an extra folder and .tex-document

My code looks like this:

\usepackage[acronym]{glossaries}

%..text...

\addcontentsline{toc}{chapter}{List of Abbreviations}
\glsaddall

\printglossary[type=main,nonumberlist, title={List of Abbreviations}]
\newpage

My glossarie is printed but some of the entrys are double in it, and i cant find a way to just get them in once. Can anybody help me?
I am new here so just tell me if you need something else or i should change something.

thank you

You don't need:
  1. \addcontentsline{toc}{chapter}{List of Abbreviations}

Just use:
  1. \usepackage[acronym,toc]{glossaries}

By double entries, do you mean that there are multiple items with the same entry information, for example
  • FB Foo Bar, 1
  • FB Foo Bar, 1
or do you mean some entries have more than one page reference, for example
  • FB Foo Bar, 1, 2
If it's the second case, the problem is partially caused by
  1. \glsaddall

Instead, use
  1. \glsaddallused

at the end of the document. Then use the indexonlyfirst package option to only index the first use.

If it's the first case, then you need to supply a Infominimal working example to demonstrate the problem.
