Dear Nicole,

could you please check the following question on stackexchange: Glossaries: using name of (sub)sections instead of page numbers

thank you a lot

Best, Meg


No mwe.tex


I don't think it would be possible to implement this in a general way, so I'm going to close this as "Can not Implement", but anyone interested in this can try the answer I gave on TeX.SX, which relies on using xindy.

Update 2020-02-29: this is now possible with bib2gls and glossaries-extra.sty's record=nameref option.
