How do I delete a shopping feed rule?

I am finding the new feed rule screens to be very user-unfriendly.  I have a supplemental feed that I am trying to delete, but it says I must delete and feed rules associated with the main feed first. I cannot seem to delete the feed rule... Help!

How do I delete a shopping feed rule? I have gone into the rule and hit various delete buttons, but I cannot seem to make the entire rule delete.  What am I doing wrong?  Thank you

to delete a feed-rule --


(a) click on the primary-feed name -- under the products-feeds-tab:
https://merchants.google.com/mc/products/sources
(b) click rules;
(c) click on the rule name;
(d) click on the set-to value;
(e) click on the trash-can -- near the lower-left-hand-corner;
(f) click on save-as-draft -- near the lower-left-hand-corner of the page;
(g) click on apply;

note that a default-rule cannot be deleted.

a supplemental-feed is simply a feed-rule created in the form of a file --
the supplemental-feed is attached to the primary-feed as a feed-rule.

to delete a supplemental-feed (rule) --


(1) follow all the steps (a) - (g) above, except for steps (c) and (d)
the name and value will be the supplemental-feed (file) name;

(2) then, under the supplemental-feed section, under the products-feeds-tab,
hover-over the supplemental-feed name, and click on the trash-can -- under
the last-upload-date column:
https://merchants.google.com/mc/products/sources

Go to Google Merchant Center > Products > Feeds > hover over the supplement feed > click on the delete icon
than go to the primary feed and click on fetch now to re process the data.

Hope this helps.

Emmanuel thanks for your reply. It doesn't work. It keeps saying:

 

"Error

 The supplemental feed is currently linked to one or many primary feeds. In order to delete this, first delete any rules in the associated primary feed."
 
I deleted the rules in the primary feed.
 
HELP! Smiley Happy
