How do I get rid of the * (red asterisk) of mandatory questions?

The red asterisk of mandatory questions is set within the template.css file ("asterisk" class). To hide it:
  • Access the desired theme. If it is a default theme, create a copy of it by clicking on the "extend" button.
  • Access the list of themes and click on the theme editor that corresponds to the newly created theme.
  • On the left side, you can visualise the corresponding CSS files of your theme.
  • Click on custom.css and add the following line:
.asterisk {display: none;}
  • Save the changes. The red asterisk that is usually displayed at the beginning of the question text is hidden.
