Display Linked Issues panel with no linked issues present

I know that once I add a linked issue, the panel appears on the Issue Screen displaying that linked issue. However, is it possible to have the Linked Issues section be always visible, even if there are no linked issues? The same way, say, Description and Attachments sections are visible in the attached example.

I can do this on the Create Issue Screen, but I want it on the Issue Screen as well.

To enable it when you've got no subtasks, you need to hack the core code in JIRA to suppress the code that says "if sub task count < 1, don't display panel".  I think it's in a template somewhere, rather than JIRA java code, but I'm not sure.

On Cloud, you have no access to the installation to make changes like that.

(When you say you've done it to the Create screen, I assume you mean you've added the "link" field, which is not the same as adding the panel)

I had a feeling it couldn't be done, I just wanted to be sure. Thanks.
