    Hi Lin,
    To delete a custom widget, go to the Organization level > Custom Types tab and under the Actions column, select the 'Delete Widget' button.

    I'll add my related questions to this one. If I want to delete a custom widget or block, how do I check if any other widgets/blocks have inherited from it?

    Hi Lin,
    At Organization level > Settings tab > Impact Analysis > enter the name of the widget/block you want to search for in the 'Please input a search type' field and select the 'Analysis' button.
    A example of the result screen is seen below:

    Option 'module' found in the 'Located at' column indicates that this widget/block is being referenced in another block.
    Cheers

    Thanks Chantal! That's really helpful and will prevent me from breaking composer.
    One last question. Is there any easy way to rename custom widgets or blocks? I don't want to do a 'Save as' to rename them because then I cannot delete the original one and we end up with doubles.

    Hi Lin,
    Unfortunately there is no easy way to rename custom widgets or blocks.
    Cheers

      Hi Lin,
      To answer your related question, internally each widget has an 'editable'property which is either set to 'true' or 'false'. The location of a widget in the 'Palette' such as the 'Custom' folder doesn't matter when determining whether it's editable, it just so happens that most of the editable widgets reside in that folder/category.

      Thanks Chantal. I discovered it was actually in the online manual after all. I do have a related question: can you confirm that we cannot edit widgets that are not in the custom category?
