How to set default issue type when creating issue inline in JIRA Agile?

When an issue is created inline in the JIRA agile Backlog view (little '+ Create' under a sprint or backlog), the default issue type seems to be the the first in alphabetical order, and not the default issue type of the project. Is there a way to change the default issue type?

As the backlog shows only an icon and not the issue type name inline, it's not easy or intuitive for users to change the issue type.

The current alphabetical default leads to situations, where backlogs are full of Bugs, when they should be full of Stories or Tasks or whatever issue type the team uses by default.

Hi Markus,

you cannot specify which should be the default issue type. The create remembers you last choice of issue type and that is what is being used.

No, it doesn't. I only create stories under epics and when I am in the backlog and click create under an epic, it creates a task, not a story.
