This modification changes the export as option for the TNG Media Collections for

  • Documents
  • Headstones
  • Histories

The RootsMagic mod is a sample mod that can be used to create similar mods for other desktop genealogy programs who only recognize certain media types. Since RootsMagic only recognizes _TYPE PHOTO, the mod changed the export as value to PHOTO for the above three TNG Media Collections.


This mod was developed by Ken Roy.
