To delete an Answer List, go to the Answer List menu and select the Delete button alongside the list to be deleted. The delete dialogue box will appear. Read the "Confirm Delete" message and then click "Delete" or click "Leave" if you do not wish to delete or are unsure.
If an Answer List is used in a survey you will be given a warning message and you will have an option to assign another list. You will not be able to delete the Answer List without assigning another Answer List or changing the surveys in which the Answer List is used.
Note: Deleting an Answer List removes the scale from the Answer Lists area. If an Answer List has been used in a "launched" project then the scale will not be deleted from the launched project even after deleting the scale from Answer Lists. When a project is launched, a copy is made of the entire survey, including Answer Lists.
