rebuilding from snapshot

I have a droplet serving a couple of websites. Now I wanted to change some things and build a new droplet with all the changes I wanted to incorporate. I made a snapshot of this new droplet. In order to not change the IP address and having to change DNS for multiple domains I want to rebuild on the existing droplet form the new snapshot.

Now when I try to rebuild the original droplet from this snapshot it does not show up in the rebuild box. It does show on my images overview.

How do I get the snapshot to show on the original droplets rebuild​ screen ?

Yes they are both in the same region.

I just figured it out.

The original droplet was a smaller size (20 GB disk 1 GB RAM) which is not available anymore, so I could not use the snapshot with the 30GB. After resizing the original droplet to increase the disk size it was available and the rebuild worked.
