"Create Subtask" is available for issue, but "Convert to Subtask" is not -- stumped!

I am running Jira 4.1.1 -- for some reason, a specific issue is unable to convert to a subtask (though other tickets in this project are able to). Create/edit permissions look fine -- nothing looks weird in the workflow step or transitions. I thought maybe something in the particular stage of the issue was limiting permissions somehow?

Any tips appreciated!

Hrmm.. any chance that the task you want to convert to already has a subtask? If that is the case, you need to move its current subtasks to normal issues, only then you can proceed to convert to subtask.

that is exactly what happened. Thanks for the quick reply!
