I’m currently working on a major new version of the datatool package. This may take a while. Please be patient. (Experimental version available for testing.)

Summary \newglossaryentry nonumberlist fails on 2nd & later runs

Sign in to subscribe to notifications about this report.


First run of pdflatex(*) on MWE with \newglossaryentry containing nonumberlist=true generates .glo file containing:
\glossaryentry{Baz?\glsnonextpages \glossentry{baz}...
Independent of whether the .gls file is then created with makeglossaries or whatever (i.e., in the simplest instance just rerunning pdflatex), second and subsequent runs of pdflatex on same MWE generates .glo file containing:
Ultimately, the nonumberlist instruction attached to individual new glossary entries is lost across multiple pdflatex runs.

(*) Command Line: pdflatex.exe -recorder --interaction=errorstopmode "glossariestest.tex"

\newglossaryentry{foo}{name=Foo, description={always first}}
\newglossaryentry{bar}{name=Bar, description={may only succeed foo}}
\newglossaryentry{baz}{name=Baz, description={optional, after baz}, nonumberlist=true}

\gls{foo} is a variable. \gls{bar} is too. However, \gls{baz} is a functional.

% commented out the following line to simplify the MWE (uncomment if you like)...
% \printglossaries



It looks like this is the result of defining the entries in the document environment rather than in the preamble. It seems that the nonumberlist option isn't being written to the .glsdefs file, so it's not set on the next LaTeX run. I'll get that fixed in the next version, but I recommend moving the definitions to the preamble instead.

Update 2016-06-09 19:56 BST: fixed in version 4.25. Please allow a few days for it to get into the TeX distributions. You'll need to delete the .glsdefs file before rebuilding with the new version.
