Changing a map item's type

Question
I have an item on my map and want to change its item type. Do I have to delete it and replace it with another item?
Answer

No, it is much simpler than that.

  • select your item,
  • go to the Object Inspector 
  • select the new type of your item.

 

The item wiill have a new type but all the properties you have already set will remain set. Note that this does not apply for perimeter items.
