Have a right click contextual menu instead of the gear and hover that sticks to the far right forcing me to scroll every single time I edit
Right now everytime you edit a structure item (eg change status or Link to another issue) when the screen redraws the focus is forced to the bottom right. This then requires the user to have to scroll first before they can take any further action on a structure item. I find I have to do 10 - 15 unnecessary mouse transaction to edit a test case, block it and then link it to the blocking item
waiting for reply
Lois, thanks for your suggestion.
Have you tried using "." keyboard shortcut? Hit "." (dot), and start typing the name of the action you need to perform. No mouse transactions, no scrolling - very efficient.
With regards to your suggestion, web applications usually don't overload right click to avoid interfering with the browser's context menu. JIRA is not an exception, and we follow JIRA approach here. (Besides, a right-click context menu wouldn't save you from scrolling if the menu is big enough.)
Does the keyboard shortcut work for you?
