How can I get custom fields to show on JIRA details even if they have not had values assigned to them yet?

Currently, I can populate the fields by clicking "edit" and then finding the field on the edit screen, or I can see the fields if they were populated when the ticket was created, but I want to be able to see it if there is no value there yet. I want to see the field with "None" as the value in the details part of the screen so that it is easier to edit. Is that possible?

As I see from https://jira.atlassian.com/browse/JRA-6697 - this feature is not availible in jira. And as the behaviour is fundamental - it is not possible to enhance without change of jira sources. Sorry for bad news.

This is because of inline editing, isn't it? You want to see the fields and be able to quick edit them.
