When editing an issue's type, I can't seem to select the new issue types I have created.

I have created new issue types and I can only still select two from the drop-down list below.

Thank you for any light you can shed on the matter.

You need to add those types to your Projec'ts Issue Type Scheme, too.

Hello Tõnis,

The second screenshot is the list of issue types under the project's issue scheme.

I suspect the configuration for the ones that are not appearing is different to the configuration for the ones that do.

If the workflow or fields are different, you can't change the issue type with a simple edit - you have to go through validation and mapping, which is only triggered by using "move issue" (to the same project)
