SurveyLegend is so smartly designed that you can easily convert a survey field into another type with just a simple click. When you convert survey fields, SurveyLegend transfers all the contents of the selected field (question and choices or answers), to the new field type you choose.
For instance, if you make a single selection question with many choices, and decide that your question would work better as a dropdown list, you can easily change the field type while you are in edit mode, and your question will be automatically converted to a dropdown list, without losing any of your choices. Even if you change a survey field with choices (ex. multiple selection), to a field without choices (ex. text box) and again convert your survey field to a sort with choices, the system will still remember the content that you had written for your choices. So, all your time and effort will not be in vain, if you change your mind.
However, some of the fields, which are not designed to gather data cannot be converted to other fields, because it does not make sense. For example, Welcome page, Thank you page, and Branding, cannot be converted to anything else. In addition, Page break and Section break can only be converted to each other, and not to a data collecting survey field.
