How do I make the acronym on first use display the short form followed by the long form in brackets? 🔗

As from version 4.02, use one of the predefined acronym styles short-long, sc-short-long or sm-short-long. For example:

\setacronymstyle{short-long}
Pre Version 4.02:

  1. If you are using the default definition of \newacronym, you can change the definition of \acrfullformat:
    \renewcommand{\acrfullformat}[2]{#2\space(#1)}
    
  2. If you are using the description, smaller or smallcaps options (but neither the dua or footnote options) you can do:
    \defglsdisplayfirst[\acronymtype]{\firstacronymfont{#3}#4 (#1)}
    
  3. Use the custom acronym format described in How do I define my own custom acronym style?.
