Deleting a draft collection? Answered

I accidentally created a copy of one of my draft collections, anyone know how to get rid of it?


I know this post is old, but I wanted to update from April 7, 2016. Here is a reply from HQ when I sent them an email about it:

"Hi,There currently isn't a way to delete draft collections. This is something that our developers are working on, but at this time it is not an option.

Sorry for this inconvenience.


Support Team @ Instructables"

So, best option: re-use that draft collection for something else until this gets fixed at HQ. Best of luck! :)

Open the page to your drafts. Click the edit button. In edit, click open the drop down bullet list on the left. The bottom option is delete. Confirm. Gone. Hope that helps!

What you referring is instructable (article) delete option, not the deleting of a collection.

Yes, I clicked the edit link, however in edit mode there is still no delete capability.

I only see editing functions.

See if this handy detail helps clarify.


Doesn't work for me either. no Delete option.

I have the same problem. I am going to keep it and rename it next time I start a new collection.
