hpsim cannot delete collections

I created some collections after searching for a term, then adding them all to a collection. Now those collections cannot be modified or removed. How would I go about deleting these, so I can add a regular collection that is easier to manage?

Thanks

hi,

you can still create new collections and modify your event handling tasks to use those instead so it need not stop you until you while you sort out you old collections.

Thanks for the quick reply.
I've been thinking of setting some up with different names, it's just frustrating that there is something in there that I can't modify. When I go to customize these collections don't even have a a plus sign next to them.

I have run into this a couple of times. Make sure you don't have anything linked to the collection (like users and tools) or it won't delete. I have also had to delete all of the items in a collections before I could delete the collection. Another time, I ran into the same issue where there is no plus sign. I found that all of the items in the collection had "disappeared" and I had to recreate it.
