This package has not been updated in the past few years. You may want to use the more recent and more flexible glossaries package. Printing a list of abbreviations or symbols is one of these things like so many LaTeX provides a very simple and elegant solution for.

First load the package in the preamble. The makenomenclature command is required for the generation of the nomenclature file. Next, add abbreviations together with their description or long form to your document. Ideally, this is done immediately after an abbreviation is mentioned for the first time. This command has an optional argument which provides control over the order of the entries.

Consider the following example:. Makeindex, the command that generates the list of abbreviations see belowwill automatically sort the entries.

To change this order manually, one can use a sorting prefix optional argumentthe simplest would just be consecutive numbers, and the symbols will be sorted accordingly. To control the distance between the symbol or abbreviation and the explaining text use the optional distance argument.

Similar to a glossary or bibliography, the document is typesetted once latex. Next, the nomenclature is generated using makeindex. Finally, the document is typesetted again, adding the nomenclature to it.

The makeindex command takes the nomenclature file. May at Thanks for your comment! For those not familiar with latexmksee here.

The drawback is, you point it out in your post, you have to collect and type everything out manually. Nice site by the way! October at October at 3: The documentation describes how to create subgroups and I put together their example below.


If you require two separate lists, I suggest using the glossaries packagewhich is more flexible. December at By the way, listoffigures, of tables, etc. January at See here for a solution to your double page break problem.

April at Hi Tom, I have tried looking at the pages you suggest, but I have still not been able to find a solution to my problem. I have created the nomenclature as a long table, but when I include the nomenclature after the list of tables the page number for the nomenclature becomes incorrect it says X in the table of contents instead of IX.

I indeed noticed this part in the documentation above: I used the nomencl pakage as you suggested in another post. Everything is working fine, but the title appears as centered, unlike the List of Tables and List of Figures page, where the title appears on the left.
