Summary:Confusing Warning: Deprecated use of \glossaryentryfield


If no default style for glossaries is defined via option nostyles and \printglossary is set without any style, you get the Warning:
Deprecated use of \glossaryentryfield.
In my eyes, that's a little bit confusing. Maybe it is possible to create a specific Warning, that no style was set and a fallback layout is used.


  description={an example}


The glossaries package now provides a clearer warning when this situation occurs. Your MWE should now show the following in the transcript:
Package glossaries Warning: No default glossary style provided 
(glossaries)                for the glossary `main'. 
(glossaries)                Using deprecated fallback. 
(glossaries)                To fix this set the style with 
(glossaries)                \setglossarystyle or use the 
(glossaries)                style key=value option on input line 19.
This should hopefully highlight the actual problem and make the later deprecated warning more understandable.
