Move Assignee Field

It would be nice to free up some horizontal space in the issue screen so that I can view more information. I really only use a single field in the sidebar - is it possible to move the "Assignee" display to be under the "details" portion of the page?

Maybe with a bit of Javascript? Or is there somewhere in the config of JIRA?

You'd need to hack the core code.

You can use javascript, but you've got a bigger problem - that "people" area is not just assignee. Reporter and any other user fields you might define will end up in there. You'll also need to think about moving all the other right-hand bar stuff around if you want to get more horizontal space

Any guidance on how I could do that? Could I just add a bit of JS to the Announcement Banner (which is how I tweak styles)? Would that help avoid hacking the core code?

I'm nto a javascript expert I'm afraid. I learned very early on to avoid javascript tweaks in Atlassian products because they're an utter nightmare to get right and even worse to maintain.

There's examples scattered through Answers though. I can't vouch for any of them but I'm certain they're better than anything I'd write
