I need to add a graphic to a create/edit/view screen for people to reference. I thought I could add a Custom Field with the type Read-only Text Field and just add an HTML image reference to the description. The problem is, I can't get the field to show up at all in the desired screen. I know the image is referenced correctly because it shows up on the admin Custom Field page. Am I using the wrong custom field type? Is there another custom field type that does what I need?

1. we're on JIRA 4.3.4
2. I'm using the "reference an image in an attachment" hack to see if I can get this working because I don't have server access and don't want to ask for an image upload until I'm sure it works.
My field configs and screens have gotten seriously complicated so I made a test config and screen just for testing this and they still don't show up. I don't think the graphic is missing because I can see it in the Custom Field and Field Config screens.
This was a "nice to have" feature request that I think I am going to have to back burner because of the massive pile of ciritical requests that have come in this week :-)
In the past, Portfolio for Jira required a high degree of detail–foresight that was unrealistic for many businesses to have–in order to produce a reliable long-term roadmap. We're tur...
