We have noticed that if there are 3 workflow transitions available for a issue the first 2 transitions are available as buttons at the top of the issue and the third transition is available under the 'Workflow' Drop Down menu.
We would prefer to have 3 workflow transitions as buttons at the top of an issue. If there are more than 3 transitions, the first 3 can be shown as buttons and the rest of the transitions can be shown in the Workflow dropdown menu.
This is a setting buried in a properties file in the installation. The default setting is 2, meaning "2 buttons, then dump all further transitions into a drop-down".
You can't change it on Cloud, as it the file is part of the installation.
But, if you are sure you want to change it to 3, then raise it as a support request with Atlassian over at https://support.atlassian.com/contact In the past, they've been happy to change it, but make sure you are sure of "3" as they won't change it lots of times, it's a one-off.
