Glossary and acronym in "Masters/Doctoral Thesis" Template

Postby tobilab » Fri Oct 18, 2019 8:41 pm

Hey community,

iam using the Masters/Doctoral Thesis template for my phd. But i am having problems with getting a glossary and acronym list printed.

my current version is:

before the document the package include and some settings and "linking" to my glossary and acronym entries with the following lines:

Code: [Select all] [Expand/Collapse] [Download] ({untitled.tex})
  1. \usepackage[acronym,toc,section,shortcuts]{glossaries}
  2. \makeglossaries
  3. \input{GlossaryAndAcronyms/glossary.tex}
  4. \input{GlossaryAndAcronyms/acronyms.tex}

For example, the glossary.tex file, for the entry definition looks like:
Code: [Select all] [Expand/Collapse] [Download] ({untitled.tex})
  1. \newglossaryentry{glos:ML}{name=Maschinelles lernen, description={Maschinelles Lernen beschreibt Algorithmen, welche ...}}

Than, at the position in the book where i want the glossary and acronym list to get printed, i do:
Code: [Select all] [Expand/Collapse] [Download] ({untitled.tex})
  1. \printglossary[style=altlist, title=Glossary, nonumberlist]
  2. \deftranslation[to=English]{Acronyms}{dds}
  3. \printglossary[type=\acronymtype,style=long,title=Shortwords]

In my text i link to a entry with
Code: [Select all] [Expand/Collapse] [Download] ({untitled.tex})
  1. \gls

Via the shell i ran:
Code: [Select all] [Expand/Collapse] [Download] ({untitled.tex})
  1. pdflatex main
  2. makeglossaries main
  3. pdflatex main
  4. pdflatex main


Using other templates the setup described above worked fine. So my question is does anyone use the template and has a glossary and acronym list printed? If so, could you please help me getting my setup to work?

Thanks in advice, tobi
