Can't convert sub-task to sub-test

I have some Sub-tasks that I would like to change the Type to Sub-test. I tried to do this two ways and both failed. 

1) Click on the "Sub-Task" value after the "Type:" caption. The drop down only contains "Technical task" and "Sub-requirement" for choices. I don't know how that drop down is populating itself - is that a Setting?

2) Click on "Convert to Issue".

The page that comes up does not have "Sub-test" in the drop down list of choices.

Again I don't know how that drop down is populating itself - is that a Setting?

Thank you for your assistance.

It looks as sub-test is not a valid issue type for this project. Try browsing to Administration » Projects » HM » Issue Types and make sure that Sub-Test is listed there. smile
