|Summary:||Enhancement Request for indexonlyfirst|
Glossary entries are usually used (by \gls) with different times in a document. Thus, the number of "page numbers" following each entry is different (might be too long). The package option "indexonlyfirst=true" can restrict page numbers of each entry to 1. However, I want to restrict them to 3 at most. Could you redesign the package option "indexonlyfirst" so that it accepts an integer number instead of a Boolean value, and it restrict page numbers to e.g. 3 at most by "indexonlyfirst=3?"
EvaluationI think that would be too complicated to implement. It's not just a matter of counting the number of times
\glshas been used. For example, it may be used three times on one page, which leads to just one location. Neither makeindex nor xindy have this capability, and the location lists created by them are difficult for TeX to parse. Since you're using glossaries-extra, it's simpler to use the
\glsand only index the places that are pertinent. For example, like sample-altmodifier.tex.
