How do I add more workflow transition buttons in Jira 5 ?


I 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.

I 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 Workflowdropdown menu.

It was easy to modify that in the previous version of Jira I was using (4.2.4) by changing the but now I'm using Jira 5 and it seems everything's changed...

where can we modify that now in Jira 5 ?
