I dont´seem to be able to add an Epic to a new issue while creating it, i only see this option in issues already created. Is that correct, or how is it possible to add the Epic directly while creating the issue?
Plus: Is there a way to add a bigger variety of colors the the Epics?
There's not an option to add the Epic during creation of an issue at this stage - like Epic Link in classic.
However, you can go into the Epic (either via the backlog or via the issue's main view) and add children to it directly, that way they'll be auto-added under that Epic. Look for the list of child issues and there will be a "+" button there to create a new child under that Epic.
In regards to colours, there are just the six colours currently available. You can change the colour by clicking on the coloured box next to the Epic's name in the issue detail view in the Backlog view - or in the issue's main view. You'll then be able to change it from the default blue.
There is a suggestion for more colours past the six - vote for it on JSWCLOUD-17726
