And another thing


#1

It looks like Choices are pretty much useless in Panorama X. In 6 and earlier, you could type the first letter, and then the second letter quickly, but you cannot do that in Panorama X. It only accepts first letters. Beyond that, if the list of choices is more than 3 or 4, only the top ones appear in the window that pops up in the Data Sheet, and there is no scrolling or columns. So you cannot choose more than those first few choices. Oh, well, at least Clairvoyance works.

I guess I am just venting. Conversion is much more difficult than it first seems. This crops up with a simple datasheet file!


#2

There are two modes for a Choices field: “Text Editor” and “Automatic”.
Using the “Automatic” option, you can resize the Choices window in three directions (as shown in my screenshot).


#3

Widening the window is useless if there is only one column. Lengthening is limited by the bottom of the screen, which also makes it useless.

This is not a gripe about Panorama; it is Apple’s fault, as far as I can tell. I guess I need to complain to them.
