### abbreviation not appear in the thesis?

I'm using Latex in writing my thesis, I have a problem in inserting the list of abbreviation. It appears in the table of contents, but not in the thesis.
Here link for the template that I use:

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

Hi Ahmed,

welcome to the forum!

That's a Word template, not LaTeX. Maybe you should ask in a Word forum?

If you have a specific LaTeX question, let us know with some details, such as the actual LaTeX code.

In this template, all nomenclature commands are commented out by a percent sign %, such as

`\usepackage{nomencl}\makenomenclature\renewcommand{\nomname}{LIST OF ABBREVIATIONS}\nomenclature{LED}{Light Emitting Diode}\printnomenclature [2.5 cm]`

You need to remove the % at the beginning of those lines.

You also need to run `makeindex`. That's an external program. Read a bit about it in the nomencl manual.

I remove the %, and the title List of abbreviation appears in the table of contents, but not appear in the page>
I read this pdf file before, but I failed to solve the problem.

You did not run makeindex, at least you did not mention it.

I'm a beginner user in Latex, I don not know what run makeindex mean. Thank you, I will read about it.

For all those using Latex Tex version for kfupm thesis, here is how to solve the nomenclature Issue:
In the loa.tex file replace
`\addcontentsline{toc}{chapter}{\, \, \, LIST OF ABBREVIATIONS}{\pageref{LOA}}`

With
`\addtocontents{toc}{\contentsline {chapter}{\numberline {}LIST OF ABBREVIATIONS}{\pageref{LOA}}}`

Also, Run Pdflatex then Run MakeIndex and then Run Pdflatex and Then Run Viewpdf (In same sequence)

Also in Options > Configure Texmaker > Commands > Make Index Window, write the following code
`makeindex %.glo -s nomencl.ist -o %.gls -t %.nlg`
OR
`makeindex %.nlo -s nomencl.ist -o %.nls -t %.nlg`

I saw this issue on an old posts, so hope it helps.
