I'm trying to convert a postgis table to an ESRI FileGeodatabase with a nightly build of QGIS, using
Save As which utilises OGR.
One of the fields is a text field with > 255 characters. I have noticed that the field was truncated to 255 characters and then QGIS did not export the records which had more than 255 characters in the field. I then found this part of the QGIS code which seems to truncate String fields to 255 characters.
I understand that this has always been a limitation for Shapefiles, but it is not for file geodatabases, so it seems bizarre to truncate all text even when the provider supports it. Or is there some other limitation I should be aware of?Maybe should go on QGIS-dev but thought I would get folks' view here first.
