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 Incorrect acronym expansion

Sign in to subscribe to notifications about this report.


In the attached MWE, acronym acr2 uses \gls{acr1} in the long form. On first use in the text, \gls{acr2} is expanded with "(acr1)" appended instead of "(acr2)". If I omit \setacronymstyle{long-short} from the preamble, the expected short form is used.

This is with glossaries 2014/09/01 v4.11 (NLCT), xelatex and makeglossaries.

\newacronym{acr1}{acr1}{first acronym}
\newacronym{acr2}{acr2}{another version of \gls{acr1}}



In my text, I first use \gls{acr1} and \gls{acr2} for the first time, then I
use both \gls{acr1} and \gls{acr2} a second time.



This occurs because the first use of acr1 occurs in the list of acronyms, which is at the start of the document. The same thing happens if an acronym occurs in the table of contents. Suggestions:

Closed as this is expected behaviour not a bug.
