Can't remove Issue changed to Epic from the active sprint board

Hi everyone,

I have an Issue in the current sprint which had to be changed to an Epic. Now I want to remove the Epic Issue from the sprint since we will work on the sub- Issues, but it seams that its not possible. I see the Epic on the active sprint board, but not in the Back Log so that I can remove it from the sprint . There are also no fields which I can change when I edit the Epic... Am I missing something or I should have removed the Issue from the sprint before turning it to Epic?

And I had to write the question before finding the answer myself :)

Just right- click on the Issue in the sprint board and Remove from sprint did the trick.
