MakeIndex and Glossary in TeXnicCenter

Postby loko208 » Sun Apr 11, 2010 8:14 am

Could someone please Explain how to pass both the glossary-related files and the index-related files as command line arguments in TeXnicCenter? I'm using the makeidx and glossary packages. I have an index-style-file called and the glossary related files abc.glo and etc have been created.

TeXnicCenter (TXC) uses MakeIndex by default in all its output profiles. So, this should be no problem. You only have to supplement the command line arguments as seen in the attachment. For further details about the command line arguments see the MakeIndex manual.

For your glossary you should use the glossaries package, which supersedes glossary. Either in its manual or in an article here in the Know How Section you will find instructions on the integration in TXC [1]. The descriptions are very detailed so this should be no big deal.
