> additional glossaries can be set up like that. If they need special .ist files you'll make separate `sub' files with the ist name set. Note: typesetting the document produces the .acn file and makeindex processes it to produce the .acr file which is then read in when typesetting again. Make sure you get the order right! If the `sub makeacn2acr' does the job you need then you need only duplicate the add_cus_dep line and substitute the extensions you are using leaving the sub call the same.

It contains the files that need to be changed as well as instructions for making the change, etc.

When you say to “make separate ‘sub’ files with the list name set”, do you mean simply additional add_cus_dep… entries?

And is there any reason such items cannot go into platexmkrc (in the source document’s directory)?   (So that I don’t need to edit existing engines or add new engines)?
