Can´t delete a step in a worklow

I am changing a workflow (draft) so one step becomes isolated (no incomming nor outgoing transitions).

However if I try to delete it I get this message:

You can not delete a step on a draft that exist on the parent workflow

Any ideas on how to delete this step from the workflow?

Thank you.

Hi, you will need to copy the workflow and workflow schemes to make such a change. Once it is copied, it will be inactive and you can make this change. Once changed, you can point the new workflow at the project and delete the old one.

You cannot delete a step from draft. You will have to activate the workflow by migrating.

This is difficult to understand. You can't delete a step from draft, neither from an active workflow?
