I can't reproduce this with Alpha final (RC3), and 18.6.7 went stable. Closing.
I also cannot reproduce it with rc3 (anaconda 18.6.8), because
the feature was removed.
Installation Source: "ISO file" cannot be found.
So it was chopped. (or maybe delayed for f19?)
It's actually smarter than that, I found out after chatting with the devs. the 'installation source' spoke will only show the ISO file option if it's viable. If the planned partition layout set in 'installation destination' involves reformatting all partitions that could possibly contain an ISO file to install from, the 'installation source' spoke won't show the ISO file option. that's probably what you're seeing, if you're going to 'installation source' after selecting the only drive on the system as the target in 'installation destination'.
