I just imported two text files – exported from my banking app – into Panorama X. Those text files have about 50 fields and are 1.7 MB and 3.1 MB in size.
Since some fields in these files are containing static data (repeating in each record, e.g. my name as account owner) I decided to set those fields to the type Choices. I was expecting a massive reduction of the file size — that used to be the result of this operation in Panorama 6.
But the size of my Panorama X databases did not change.
Is the Choices field type at the moment only a UI feature? Does it (still) not save space?
