OMERO splits up tiled czi file into its tiles during import

Hi again,

Is there a way to prevent OMERO from saving every single tile of a tiled czi into a new (numbered) file? If not - what is the reason for this behaviour?

(OMERO v. 5.5.1)

It might have to do with this option inside BioFormats:

If this is disabled, a 3x6 Tile would be opened as 18 series, which is due to the fact that CZI has scenes and tile regions, which are dimensions OME-TIFF can not deal with easily, since the concept of OME-TIFF was not developed for this.
