Removal of edit button on new view



The edit button, in new view, is gone.   If I'm in old view, the custom fields will show during an Edit, but in new view they don't appear for edit at all.


Is there a way (switch, re-enable edit button, config change) or something, that adds the ability to see blank fields in new view?   This change is rather inconvenient using new view, and I'm not sure how much longer old view will be an option

The link above seems to offer functionality to manage tabs. 


This is the Edit button in question which does not appear in the New View. How can this button be enabled to appear?

The Edit-Button has removed completely from New Issue View. Edits are now possible directly, in-line in other words. There is no way to bring the edit button back.

For fields to show up permanently you can put them in "Issue layout" configuration to "Context fields".

More information about this can be found here:

Just make sure the fields are not in "Hide when empty" subsection.

This is true, and it sucks.
