# glossaries package FAQ

I redefined one or more of the commands governing the glossary style, but it hasn’t had an effect 🔗

Remember that these commands are overridden whenever `\setglossarystyle` is used (or `\glossarystyle` for versions prior to v4.0), so make sure the new definitions are placed after `\setglossarystyle`. In particular, remember that if you use the `style` key in the optional argument of `\printglossary`, it will override any previous definitions.

In general, it’s best to define a custom style that’s based on the required one with the necessary modifications. Alternatively, consider using glossaries-extra with the `stylemods` option (which automatically loads glossaries-extra-stylemods.sty), which provides additional hooks to make it easier to customise the styles. With the glossaries-extra package, you can also use hooks, such as the post-description category hook, to make minor adjustments, and there are additional styles, which may suit your requirements.
