Summary Specifying glossary preambles and postambles in an alternative way

Sign in to subscribe to notifications about this report.



In documents with several glossaries, it would be perhaps more convenient to specify glossary preambles and postambles on a per-glossary basis (e.g. using commands \setglossarypreamble and \setglossarypostamble) instead of repeatedly redefining \glossarypreamble and \glossarypostamble.

Here's my proposal for \setglossarypreamble:


%% \setglossarypreamble[<type>]{<text>}
      Glossary `#1' is not defined%


So what do you think about this?

Best regards,
Michael Pock
