Reply to: Insertion of @type attributes when loading maps

Update: I dug around and found the code that inserts these attributes and managed to override it with a macro in my XMetaLAuthorStartup folder:

[code]

    //Copied from the out-of-the-box implementation. Commented out some calls to XM.XML.SetAttribute();
  }
]]>

[/code]

So, a couple of follow up questions:
– Are there any ramifications to removing @type attribute insertion entirely? I see what I need to change to instead have my specialized topic type inserted. Should I do that instead?
– Are there any issues with my general approach of using a startup macro to override this functionality?
