abbreviation not appear in the thesis?

Postby ssabdoan » Mon Oct 24, 2016 7:52 pm

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. :roll:
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

  1. \usepackage{nomencl}
  2. \makenomenclature
  3. \renewcommand{\nomname}{LIST OF ABBREVIATIONS}
  4. \nomenclature{LED}{Light Emitting Diode}
  5. \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.
Thank you for your time

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
Code: [Select all] [Expand/Collapse] [Download] ({untitled.tex})
  1. \addcontentsline{toc}{chapter}{\, \, \, LIST OF ABBREVIATIONS}{\pageref{LOA}}

With
Code: [Select all] [Expand/Collapse] [Download] ({untitled.tex})
  1. \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.
