Double-display of the Watchers field when viewing the issues


Thanks for the plugin, it does exactly what my users wanted it to do.

I am having a little cosmetic (and confusing) issue with the viewing issue part. It does display the Watcher field two tims. Once together with "Start watching this issue", and one more time a standard list of Watchers.

This is quite confusing for the users.


Thanks in advance for your support.

Simple. Just remove the  custom "Watchers" field from the View Screen.

Thanks for the answer.

When I remove it from the Default screen, it is not there anymore (neither on the Create issue view).

When I add it again, it is doubled.


I would appreciate if you could enlighten me on this matter.

Thanks a lot again.

Looks like you are using the default screens for create and view (probably edit as well ). You will need to create a separate screen or just copy the default screen and give it another name. Make the requisite changes and update the screen scheme.
