Perhaps I don't understand waht you mean. Whay are you unable to just delete the extra styles?
In the character styles pane, don't you see all the character styles you created? Can't you edit them there or delete, like paragraph styles? Most certainly, you can.
If you can, I can't figure it out. If you know, please give me the steps. I've tried searching for the answer and have not found it. I'm specifically talking about character styles for a bullet.
Here you go:
As you can see I have all these extra character styles (trial and error mistakes). I will amend what I said in my original question - it will preview, but I have to click OK on the New Character Style box (second image) first and it will preview.
What I want to do is 1) edit existing bullet character styles and 2)delete bullet character styles.
Thanks for your help!

Window > Styles > Character Styles... (if you don't see that listed, look under Window > Type and Tables, or anything esle that looks promising -- the location has moved over the various versions)
You can either delete them there, or choose one and edit it.
Thank you!!! I didn't see the Character Styles box because it was pushed down the screen.
You made my day - this has been driving me nuts because I knew there must be a way!
Peter thank you for that answer! I've done it before but forgot tonight. Spend about 20 minutes trying to figure this out until I decided to Google it. Your answer was the first to show.
But wow oh wow, to edit a style is one of the most convoluted and unnecessary procedures I have ever seen.
Why isn't the edit option in where it logically should be?
It just seems that InDesign...well actually, the entire suite is a hodge-podge of features and options kind of slapped together. Oh don't get me wrong, I love the tools but sometimes... it can be frustrating.
