Summary Confusing Warning: Deprecated use of \glossaryentryfield

Sign in to subscribe to notifications about this report.


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.
