How can I reset the time remaining on a story (and its sub-tasks)?


I mistakenly logged work on a story ticket (1-day work), which I thought I fixed by deleting the work from the story and logged it on the sub-task (1-day work). I expected this to set the remaining time to 0 days, but it actually set it to estimated 1 day (1 day completed in the sub-task), d. How can I reset the remaining time?

For reference, the green bar indicates the 1 hour logged in the sub-task. The orange bar is the estimated 1 day remaining.

Looks like the original estimate on the story isn't set?  It says "Not specified".  Set the original estimate on the Story to 0, and on the sub-task to 1d.
