Screen -> Way to make field read-only and fields side-by-side

Hey guys!

I have the following screen which pops up during a transition:


First i would like to get the fields horizontal side-by-side. I already googled for that and didnt find a solution. The feature request seems to be declined by Atlassian and i didnt find any other solution like plugin or something.

Do you guys know a way to realize this?


Other question i have is:

Is there a way to make the field 1 with all its checkboxes read only and only field 2 read/write?

Thought about some javascript in field description but my javascript skills are pretty primitive.
Only used it yet to hide and prefill summaryfield, but nothing else.

Thank you in advance, would be happy to hearing from you!

Code, and quite a lot of it.

Atlassian are not going to put the fields side-by-side any time soon.  That means if you want to do it, you have to either change their code in the core of JIRA, or come up with javascript hacks to re-arrange the screen (usually ugly, and often unreliable)

On the other question - yes, remove field 1 from the transition screen.  If it's read-only, don't present it to the user at all.
