Remove Status from draft workflow

I think I have got myself lost.

I have added a new status of Hold to a workflow and how when I try to remove it I get the message of "Statuses cannot be removed from draft workflows".

How do I remove it?

Your help is appreciated.

You can't delete status in draft mode.  I've just answered it on your similar question at https://answers.atlassian.com/questions/18811790

Hi Eric,

You can't remove a Status from a draft workflow, since any projects should be still using it (and probably have some issues in that specific Status).

To delete a Status, you need to disable this Workflow by associating a different one to the projects, making this one idle. After that, the option to remove the Status will appear.

Hope it helps!

Switch to Diagram mode and delete by right-clicking on the status.

Wow this is frustrating, as I'm creating a new project and there are no issues. But I want to demo what I'm doing. So frustrating.
