Q: Why are the field names more than 10 bytes truncated after importing the shp data in iDesktop? The shp data was exported from the *.gdb in ArcMap?

A: It is because the field names in shp format can only be less or equal to 10 bytes. If the lengths of the field names in the vector data exceeds 10 bytes, it is recommended that you import the *.gdb data file directly into iDesktop instead of importing the shp file exported from ArcMap.
