    I created forms with multiple questions only to be told they want them all drop down instead of text. Is there a way to change the question type or do I have to delete them all and create them all over again?

    If I understand you correctly you mean that you want to convert those particular fields from text fields into drop down fields? Is that what you are saying? Please confirm or correct me.

    If that's the case then unfortunately it's not currently possible. To my knowledge the only way right now is to delete those fields and manually replace them with the field type that is needed.

    YES, that was it. I created several fields for several forms and was hoping not to re create them but will just have to.

    If the fields were the same, you can clone/copy it to the other form(s) using our Field Manager app: http://apps.jotform.com/app/field_manager. If not, you will have to manually do it again to all forms.
