How to create a circular transition

We have upgraded to 6.3.12 and I can't seem to find a way to create a transition that point to itself (destination step = originating step). In past versions we had the ability to create a global transition with the Destination step of -1. 

Now I can't seem to find this option (which was available from the Diagram workflow-designer view only).

Hi Perdo, this allows to create a global transition but how can I make it circular? That's the problem

Hi Peter, in the designer you can press in one of the circles around the status label and then press another one. It will show you the screen for naming the transition and select the screen for the transition.


Hey Ramiro, this is indeed working but for a specific status only. I would like to have this as a global feature (transition to be available from all workflow steps).

I believe that feature was removed in a recent release, perhaps 6.3?

That's what I'm afraid of. However I see it is supported (and works) on workflows that had this configuration before we have upgraded.
