It is not possible to edit any item (or other entity) IDs and Types within LMS. Generally, IDs act as the primary key for database tables and once they are created, they can not be modified or deleted.

The only available workaround would be to copy and/or create a new item as follows:

1. Make a copy of the item by going to Actions > Copy.

2. Create the new item.

3. Modify the description/title - if you would like.

*Please note the copy function does not allow to change the item Type. In such cases, a new item would need to be created altogether, using the desired item Type.
