  • What versions are you using? I'm having the same issue with SPD 15.0.4787.1000, MSO 15.0.4823.1000 and SP 15.0.0.4727. – Fowl Jul 15 '16 at 1:23
  • my SharePoint designer version Is 15.0.4420.1017 – Akshay Dattatray Nangare Jul 15 '16 at 9:16
  • I see no many answer... also googleing did not help and MS - as for the majority of bugs - ignores it. I am having the same problem, but I also realized that the WF seems to keep its functionalities even if the Content Type disappeared. Yes, if you have to develop it it is unpleasant because you have to copy all steps one by one and redo the connections... If you found a better workaround, please share! – Marpio Feb 1 '17 at 8:20

The "Associate to Content Type" option will be enabled only if you are creating a reusable workflow using SharePoint 2010 workflow platform.

From SP 2013 and in the SP Online this option is no more available. Once you create a reusable workflow you can only associate to only a List/Library.

This change is giving an ability to avoid the association to only content types in a specific list but not all.

Below screenshot if you are creating a reusable workflow with 2013 workflow platform. enter image description here

This is a pic with a workflow 2013 you're showing. As far as I know only 2010 workflows can be associated with a specific content type...
