Is it possible to change the question type (after saving) without wasting the entered response options? For example, changing from a multiple choice question to a radio list type without sacrificing the alternatives included in the M Choice question?

Thanks.

No, you will need to re-enter the answer options for the select-radio question.

Cheers,

Would be great if the answer options would be preserved between single choice and multiple choice. But at least with the quick edit you can paste the responses quite quick again.

Sometimes i use a specifi lable for this : "00tmp"
- Quick replace as label
- Update question type
- Quick load from label
