VMD created the topic: preserve subquestions when changing question type?
Hi

I've created a survey with a large number of multiple choice questions, however it has now been decided that these should be radio lists instead as they only want one answer selected.

Is there a way to change the question type from multiple choice to radio list and preserve the subquestions already created. When I tried it deletes them and asks me to recreate them.

Thanks

The problem is that a multiple choice question consists of several sub-questions (each answer option is a yes/no=checked/not checked answer) while for a single choice question you only have to store one answer for the whole question.
Because of this technical difference, there is (to my knowledge) no easy way to switch between these question types.
