add subtask button missing

Hi, i tried already all hints and tips that i found on internet how to enable sub task button on issue screen. I have all my fields optional, sub task is also in issue type available. I have no idea what i can do as next.

I have scrum board and admin rights.

Thank you

Oh, bother, I just noticed what was in your screen-shot.

You're looking at a sub-task already.  That's why there's no "create sub-task" option - you're already at the sub-task layer, and you can't go any lower (sub-task of sub-task is not possible in Jira)

@Nic Brough _Adaptavist_  thats screen shot from the story, not subtask

Your screenshot is showing a sub-task - first line tells us that  where it gives the parent and child issue key - Projects / Versa / Ver-1 / Ver-2
