Why is a custom issue type not appearing?

I created a custom issues type (Technical Story) and associated it to my projects scheme, however, I cannot edit the current issues to convert to the new type.

I have reindexed at a system level, and it works on a new issue. 

any ideas?

Is it appearing in the list when you try to "Move" the issue?

Sure does.

As easy as that was, it seems kinda counterintuitive. 


The option will only appear in the drop-down of available issue types on "edit" if the configuration for it is identical to the current issue type.
