Delete Content

43 Delete a Part

To delete Main Body parts:

  1. Click the Organize tab in the Dashboard menu to view the parts and chapters in a book.
  2. Scroll over the name of the part that you want to delete to reveal the Edit, Trash, and View options.
  3. Click “Trash.” (Note that there is no warning message.)

""

If the deleted part contains chapters, these will be moved to another part. If the deleted part was below the first Main Body part, the orphan chapter(s) will move to the first part. If the deleted part is the first Main Body part, the orphan chapter will move to the last part. Consider moving chapters to another part before deleting the part.

IMPORTANT: The front matter and back matter parts of a book cannot be deleted, but chapters within these parts can be added or deleted.
