How do I delete a submission as an editor?

I’ve created a few test-purpose dummy submissions, but I can’t delete them.
Past answers suggest that I do “Reject and Archive Submission” (How do I delete a submission?), but I don’t see that option in my system.
Even after I decline the submission, it sits under “in review” and doesn’t move to “archive”.

Hi @Newtonite,

What software of our are you using, and what version?

It’s OJS 2.4.8.

Hi @Newtonite,

Try the “Reject and Archive Submission” link on the submission’s Summary page (as Editor). That should send it to the archive.

Hi,

I have the same problem, I’m using OJS 2.4.8.2, and I have archived the articles but I don’t see the button Delete.

Here I send an image:

Please, give me more details where I can find the Delete button or link.
Regards,
Mabel

Hi @Mabel,

I suspect you’re browsing as a Section Editor. To delete a submission from the archive, you’ll need to browse as an Editor.

You are right, I was as an Author.
Thank you so much Alec.
