Summary Detect whether \gls (and friends) are inside footnotes and behave accordingly

Sign in to subscribe to notifications about this report.


With e.g. \setabbreviationstyle[acronym]{footnote-sc}, the first occurrence of an acronym \gls{foo} displays the corresponding long form in a footnote. So far, so good. But, if this first occurrence arises in a footnote, it doesn't work (the long form isn't displayed).

Would it be possible for glossaries-extra to detect whether \gls (and friends) are inside footnotes and to behave accordingly (use a fallback style that may be specified by the user, e.g. long-short)?
