ID: 140 🔗 Closed (Not a Bug) glossaries-extra v1.41 2020-01-16 19:30:18 long-short-sc style ⇒ \acrlong in small caps

## Report

If long-short-sc style is used, \acrlong (and long part of \acrfull) is, in the text, typeset in small caps instead of normal font (no problem in the glossary).

### MWE

\listfiles

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage{libertine}
\usepackage{glossaries-extra}
\makeglossaries%
\setabbreviationstyle[acronym]{long-short-sc}
\newacronym{laser}{laser}{light amplification by stimulated
%
\begin{document}
\begin{itemize}
\item \gls{laser}
\item \acrshort{laser}
\item \acrlong{laser}
\item \acrfull{laser}
\end{itemize}
\printglossary
\end{document}


## Evaluation

The \acrshort, \acrlong and \acrfull commands are for the original acronym mechanism of the base glossaries package. The glossaries-extra package has new commands that are designed to work with the new abbreviation mechanism: \glsxtrshort, \glsxtrlong and \glsxtrfull. Example:

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage{libertine}
\usepackage{glossaries-extra}
\makeglossaries%
\setabbreviationstyle[acronym]{long-short-sc}
\newacronym{laser}{laser}{light amplification by stimulated
%

\item \acrshort{laser} vs \glsxtrshort{laser}
\item \acrlong{laser} vs \glsxtrlong{laser}
\item \acrfull{laser} vs \glsxtrfull{laser}
\end{itemize}

Ooops, sorry for the noise! I'm a bit lost between the two packages.

As I said, I would dream of a glossaries2 package, with the features of glossaries-extra but without the longish and confusing "xtr" (in fact, each time a user is facing a macro name containing "xtr", he has to mentally remove this string in order to figure out what this command is supposed to do).

Many thanks, anyway!
