Additional Considerations

The Survey Editor displays limited warnings when you attempt to delete questions or answers which are referenced in element conditions such as "Show if" logic (cond) or "Answer Piping" (rowCond, colCond, and choiceCond). Warnings are also shown when you delete a parent element, such as a block or loop, which contains a question or answer referenced in element conditions.
