 +====== Delete only Children ======
 +===== Quick Steps =====
 +
 +
 +  * Right-click on the element options column  to the left of the element/caption/vocabulary (just called 'element' below, for short)that you want to delete
 +  *Choose <Delete only Children>
 +
 +===== Detailed Steps =====
 +
 +You can delete a group of sub-elements, leaving the parent element intact, if you wish.
 +
 +  *Right-click on the element options column to the left of the element that you want to delete
 +
 +{{:howto:deleteonlychildrenofanelement.1.jpg|}} 
 +
 +  *Choose <Delete only Children>
 + 
 +{{:howto:deleteonlychildrenofanelement.2.jpg|}}
 +
 +This will delete only the sub-elements of that element, leaving the parent element intact
 + 
 +{{:howto:deleteonlychildrenofanelement.3.jpg|}}
 +
 +**//In a template//**: if you delete the children of an element in a template, those sub-elements will no longer appear in that template whenever it is accessed. However, you can always [[howto:addelement | add a sub-element]] when you need to.
 +
 +**//In a record//**: if you delete the children of an element in a record, the sub-elements will only disappear from that record. Once you close the record and re-open it, the sub-element will re-appear in the template that you have chosen.
 +
 +If you would like to delete both a parent element and its sub-elements, then use [[howto:deleteelement|Delete an element]] instead.
