Hey Fiona,

Maybe you can refer to this page as an reference:

http://www.j-tricks.com/1/post/2012/05/modifying-atlassian-bundled-plugins.html

This page is telling how to move the description before issue details in the View Issue page.

Maybe you can give it some changes and test in your test instance.

Hi Fiona,

Not sure what you mean by "shaded red box". But if you want to set the order of display for fields on a screem, you should be looking at screen schemes.
