I simply want to delete a step from an active workflow, but I don't want to end up with a workflow with a new name. I understand from this answer that I have to:
The problem with this, is that I have to use a new NAME for the workflow (I can't use the original name because it is still active, and I can't de-activate it because it is assigned to a scheme that is active in a project).
I ended up getting what I wanted, but I had to use the following (ridiculously convoluted) process:
I don't think I'll do that again. If I ever again have to delete a step from a WF, I'll just rename the WF to WF_v1.
Is there any other way?
I use a somewhat less convoluted process:
1. Copy the workflow to be edited.
2. Edit all necessary workflow schemes to use the copy from step 1 instead of the original.
3. Edit the original workflow.
4. Edit the same workflow schemes as step 2 to now use the original workflow again.
5. Delete the workflow copy from step 1.
