Summary:glossaries and makeidx packages


I have a problem with glossaries and makeidx packages. As you see in attached file (ex1.tex), I define two words and index them with below commands:

Then I run below sequence of commands:

xelatex -synctex=1 -interaction=nonstopmode %.tex
xindy -L persian-variant1 -C utf8 -M numeric-sort -M latex -M latex-loc-fmts -M texindy %.idx
xelatex -synctex=1 -interaction=nonstopmode %.tex
xelatex -synctex=1 -interaction=nonstopmode %.tex
But there are two problems in output pdf (ex1.pdf):
1) The index words, arranged according to name (English name), not according to plural.
2) The words are not grouped.

Note 1: please see ex2.pdf for correct result.







{name={Strictly Stable}, 
plural={‌پایدار قطعی},


این یک مثال است.




If you inspect the .idx file you will see that it contains the following:
\index doesn't expand its argument when writing to the .idx file and since xindy doesn't understand (La)TeX commands the index won't be correctly sorted. This is a feature of \index and is not connected with glossaries.
