Nomenclature stopped working in TeXstudio

Postby polemicist » Mon Nov 23, 2020 7:58 pm

Dear all,

I have am relatively new to LaTeX. I have used now for 4 reports. Somehow, the abbreviation is not working for my documents anymore. I even copied a sample code from the internet but it still is not working.

In TeXstudio, I have gone to options, configure TeXstudio, I have set the Default Glossary Tool to
Code: [Select all] [Expand/Collapse] [Download] ({untitled.tex})
  1. makeindex %.nlo -s -o %.nls -t %.nlg

It still doesn't make the Abbreviation section appear on the paper. Below I have oncluded a sample code, believing that if the code starts to work here, I can transfer it to my report. Any help is grestly appreciated.

  1. \documentclass[a4paper,12pt]{book}
  2. \usepackage{nomencl}
  3. \makenomenclature
  4. \renewcommand{\nomname}{List of Abbreviations}
  6. \begin{document}
  7. \printnomenclature[3cm]
  8. \newpage
  9. Scanning Electron Microscopy (SEM) \nomenclature{SEM}{Scanning Electron
  10. Microscopy} is used for microstructural analysis, while
  11. X-ray Diffraction (XRD) \nomenclature{XRD}{X-ray Diffraction} gives the phase
  12. of the material.
  15. (XRD) \nomenclature{$XRD$}{X-ray Diffraction}
  16. \end{document}

Just in case this post would be of help to anyone, I forgot to make index (Tools -> Index). After this, the Nomenclature list was made. 8-)
