Understanding purpose of checkbox custom field vs custom taxonomy
Problem: I would like to understand the advantages of using a single checkbox custom field as opposed to using a single term in a custom taxonomy. I would also like to know if it's possible to migrate a custom field checkbox to be a single term in a custom taxonomy.
Solution: The advantage of a checkbox vs. a taxonomy term are a bit subjective. When you create Query Filters in wp-admin, you can create more powerful filters for custom fields than you can create for terms, but in practical use that's probably not a real advantage. You could argue that it's less likely for other site admins to be able to create a problem by adding other terms to this custom taxonomy. It's also easier to set up a checkbox field that doesn't have a term archive associated with it, since taxonomy terms are usually set up to have archives by default. You can assign custom fields to a many-to-many relationship, while it's not always easy to assign a taxonomy term to that same relationship. Managing this checkbox status in Forms might be a challenge if it's set up as a flat taxonomy because there's no simple checkbox input for flat taxonomies. You would have to type the term name.
Those are the main things I can think of right now. Migrating a checkbox to a term would require custom code, a custom SQL statement that directly manipulates the database, or some manual intervention in a CSV export / import process.

Problem: A select custom field lists all countries as options, but only some of these have been applied to posts. When creating a search View how to only include those countries in the filter dropdown which have been assigned to posts.
Solution: In the Custom Search Settings select "Let me choose settings manually" and then choose "Show only available options for each input".

Types shortcodes not parsed on the backend
Problem: I am using a 3rd-party shortcode inside a Types custom field, but when I try to display the custom field on the front-end the shortcode is not parsed. It is displayed as raw text.
Solution: For best results do not use output="raw" to display the Types field.
