How Do You Transition Issues In Workflow

This question is in reference to Atlassian Documentation: Transitioning an Issue

How do I transition an issue to another state in the workflow when the states are in the same column?

i.e. In progress column has several states.  Need issue to move from In Dev to Ready for QA but remain in the In Progress column.

I'm afraid you don't

Atlassian have said they're not going to enable the ability to change status within a column.  You'll need to split it into two columns.

You can change the workflow status on the issue screen though.  Is this the only place you can change it?  

Kinda makes workflows useless if you can't change the state of an issue :sad:

In most cases, a status has a 1:1 relationship with a column. 

From what I can make out, Atlassian only really coded for many status in a column to handle "several endpoints in a workflow", "alternate authorisations" and "different test paths", none of which expect to change between status within the column.
