Creating list of abbreviations

Postby tapanjain » Tue Jan 03, 2017 11:55 am

I am writing my Thesis on Latex. I want that all the abbreviations appearing in the text should automatically generate a list at appropriate place in thesis.
Can anyone help me in writing the same?

I have used following syntax, but for this we have to type the entire list manually. I want the list to be generated automatically once I describe the abbreviation in text.

  1. \usepackage{enumitem}
  3. \newlist{abbrv}{itemize}{1}
  4. \setlist[abbrv,1]{label=,labelwidth=1in,align=parleft,itemsep=0.1\baselineskip,leftmargin=!}
  6. \chapter*{List of Abbreviations}
  7. \chaptermark{List of Abbreviations}
  9. \begin{abbrv}
  11. \item[AHSS] Advanced High Strength Steel
  13. \end{abbrv}

Welcome to the LaTeX Community.

You might be interested in the glossaries package, for example. After definition of acronyms (i.e. abbreviations) you will be able to use them with the command \gls{foo} and print the full list of acronyms basically at any place you desire.
Oh my god, you are confusing me with someone who is really, really, really interested in that!
