Deleting a metadata favorite
If you have a metadata favorite that is not needed any longer, you can remove it by deleting it. When you delete a metadata favorite, it can no longer be used to populate attribute values for new or modified features. However, deleting the favorite does not affect the values in the feature-level metadata fields for features that were edited when that metadata favorite was active.
