I'm working with DITA and I would like to have a list of acronyms and abbreviations added to my book (save ditamap as book with fm components). I have learned that if I use Indexterm elements I can have a pretty nice list of these in Index page. But I feel that this is not the right way to do it.
I found also glossentry-file (or glossgroup for several entries) where I can have the acronyms and also the long term and with abbreviated-form element it should be possible to get automatically the acronym or the long one to the topics. But here comes the problem.
I don't know how to refer to this glossgroup, when adding to ditamap and then in topics with abbreviated-form. I have searched from web but I don't understand where these href, keyref and keys values are coming from. I have ID for the glossgoup and I guess that ID should be href or kref, but what are the others?
If glossgroup is used is there a possibility to get the list of used acronyms and abbreviations with the explanations added to the book?
By searching and also by guessing I learned where the values are coming from(it would be nice to tell in examples what names are used for files so that you know where those are coming from). But I couldn't get it working with PDF, there are only empty places where the acronym or the long term should be shown. I got abbreviated-form to work with HTML5 and with HTML help when I was testing if I could learn something about why it is not working. I was surprised that it was actually working with those types.
Is there a some known problem related to this abbreviated-form+PDF? I found from different forums that there are some problems but the only questions I found related to my question were missing the answer.
I noticed that I have text ERROR in front of my glossref element in WYSIWYG view but I haven't found out why. Console pod doesn't display anything while saving the ditamap. Validation is ok. In structure view it seems to be related to fm-topicreflabel.
