    Can I switch from check boxes to radio buttons and keep the same options?

    Asked by BabsMark on December 17, 2016 at 11:46 PM

    Or do I need to enter information again?


    example: I have a scale with five options Strongly Agree to Strongly Disagree - and I used  check boxes I realized that I should have used radio buttons. I have 25 questions. Do I need to start over using the radio button option or is there a way that the I make a switch?

    Hey Barbara, you'd have to manually enter the options again. There's no way to convert all Checkboxes into Radio Buttons.

    Since Radio Buttons and Checkboxes have that same OPTIONS menu at the top of the FORM BUILDER, just copy and paste them like so:
