Using Glossary, you can define important terms which are used in the project. It can also contain abbreviations with their descriptions.

The glossary editor and viewer is accessible from Project ribbon tab – group Documentation or from classic menu Project / Glossary

The new glossary item can be added using Add button in the left top bar. If you want to delete an existing glossary item, you can do it using the Remove button in the same top bar. It is possible to choose the order of glossary terms using the Sort button - you can sort the item by name or creation date by ascending or descending.

A glossary item consists of these attributes:

  • Term – defines the name of the glossary item (abbreviation, alias, keyword)
  • Type – specifies the domain of the term.
  • Meaning – describes the glossary item and explains its details. The content of meaning can be formatted text – you can emphasize chosen parts using various formatting options such as bold or italic, colors, and highlighting.

If you use a glossary term in project documentation, you can move the mouse cursor over it, and the glossary item including its meaning will be displayed in a tooltip.
