Hello Swarup
Thanks for the question. For quite long time already (3.0?) KEXI does not
require removal or recreation of the table if modified property is of such
non-fundamental kind. So no worries here.

Also no worries here. If removal or recreation of the table is required
KEXI _always_ tells you that and asks for confirmation prior to the change.
You then have the opportunity to abandon changes made to the project
