Can you change a Photo Instructable to a Step By Step Instructable without creating a whole new Instructable? Answered

...and thereby loosing the associated data of an existing Photo Instructable? I created a photo style instructable which should probably have been a step by step, and though I understand that I can copy and paste, etc... I am still creating an entirely new instructable... and thereby loosing comments, votes, views, etc... as well as all the notations I placed on the images.

Thanks for any help!

As I said on your project, don't delete the first project, just edit in a link to the new version.

No, you can't convert from one format to the other, at least not at this time. Follow the Kiteman's instructions.

+1 The other thing you can do is start a new step-by-step, then open your photo ible in edit mode, then copy and paste the content from the photo ible to the step-by-step... Unfortunately I had to do this when I first started and chose the wrong kind. If you're not worried about losing any comments, or views, then after copying and pasting you can just delete the photo ible.
