Same status modification across different workflows

I have a peculiar situation happening....

I have defined 4 different workflows, one for each issue type of project X.

I have made one workflow scheme, where each issue type is assigned to the specific workflow. I have also assigned the workflow scheme to project X.


However, when I edit the first status ('create') in one of those workflows, all the other workflows are changed as well. I am not sure why this happens, can someone help?

Status are shared objects, not per-workflow.  Your four workflows share them, so when you edit it, the others are affected.  Have a look in Admin -> Issues -> Status to see the list.

OK, so I will just define new statuses that will go to different workflows, thanks!
