Pinned topic TL Macros - mTopic and mNonLingEntities

‏2012-12-27T19:48:13Z |
Documentation on macros mTopic and mNonLingEntities indicate that new types are added to mTopic and new nonlinguistic entities are added to mNonLingEntities macros... automatically? However, there are also actual types defined in these Macros.

Is it that the new entities are 'automatically' added to the macros...
IF They do not exist in another macro?
If they exist in another Macro, then you need to manually add them to the mTopic and mNonLingEntities definitions to force them to be included?

    Also...

    why is nonlinguistic entity Currency not added to mTopic by default?

    Also, If these are automatically added to these macros, how does on exclude a Type from being automatically included? (by adding the type to another Macro?)

    hello
    You're right: to prevent a new type to be added to the macro mTopic, you just need to create a new macro.
    If you create the type WhateverType and don't want it to be added by default to mTopic, create a macro mWhateverType such as velue=($WhateverType)

    Hello

    Provided the template you've selected contains the macro mTopic, new types are 'automatically' added to this macro:
    1. IF They do not exist in another macro

    If they exist in another Macro, then you need to manually add them to the mTopic and mNonLingEntities definitions to force them to be included
