Thanks, but I could not get the entry to appear in the document - it  
was just hidden.

I figured out another solution. Now I am using BibDesk with glossdef.  
In the document I use the package "gloss". This works fine but I got  
a question more.

After the first run gloss creates a file *.gls.aux and when I use  
BibTeX (the engine in TeXShop) for the second run it reads the normal  
*.aux and of course can not find any entries. To resolve this I use  
the following command line:

bibtex myglossar.gls

Is there a way to do this with a maybe modified copy of the BibTeX- 
engine within TeXShop?
