I created a label in my Gmail labels and nested other labels under it. When I went to remove the created label this message appeared:
The following labels will be removed from your messages and then deleted. No messages will be deleted.
I went ahead and clicked "remove" thinking only the so-called "parent" or "top" label would be removed and all the other labels nested under it would be returned to the top level, but alas they disappeared too. What happened to the nested labels? Also how can I un-nest a label, to stand alone as it did before nested?
