glossaries package FAQ
makeglossaries can’t find the style file when file name has spaces 🔗
More detailed description of problem: You are using MiKTeX, your .tex file has spaces in it (for example, “my doc.tex”) and you run
makeglossaries "my doc"but makeglossaries reads the style name as my*doc.ist. (That is, the space has been replaced with an asterisk.)
This is caused by MiKTeX bug #2301.
- Remove the spaces in your file name. (Optimal solution.)
- Upgrade to at least makeglossaries version 2.13 (glossaries version 4.03 and above).
