Where to change the issue type in the new issue view?

Hi all, 

in the new issue view (jira cloud, August 2018) the edit button is dismissed and I don't know where to change the issue type now, e.g. from bug to story.

Hello Yvonne,

There are no changes performed on the Issue Type field in the new JIRA interface.

The main reason that usually this operation is not possible to be performed is when the issue types are using different workflows and not a common one, so you can only change the issue type by clicking on Move and add the issue to a new workflow.

Can you please confirm if this is the case?

Hello Petterson,

thanks a lot for the rapid reply. I've to check the workflows but the Move function works, so many thanks for this hint!

Kind regards 

You are welcome, Yvonne!

This is absolutely a terrible thing that has happened for it to be taken away.
