Issue type description field (on create issue screen

Hello, I'd like to be able to show the description of the Issue Type field when users are creating a new issue. I've got descriptions for all other fields on this form to help users submit an issue but I can't seem to get the description for hte Issue Type to show. Any ideas?

Hi Simon,

The description for the Issue Type has not been added to the Create Issue Screen. But, the user can clicked on the help icon to get the description of the issue types.

Thanks Janet, as we're hosting JIRA, I guess I can edit the file to give instructions but it would be helpful if the description showed on the create issue screen as it does with all other fields (you can add a description via admin which gave me a false hope!).
