Number of visible workflow buttons changes throughout workflow

So I have a JIRA workflow that at one step has 4 possible transitions, so I modified the file that we created in <jira-home>/atlassian-jira/WEB-INF/classes by adding the following line: = 4


Restarted JIRA and it now shows 3 buttons at one part of my workflow, which suggests that the change did get picked up as JIRA's default is only 2 buttons:

But in the part of the workflow where it should show 4 buttons it only shows 2 buttons and hides the other 2 under the Workflow drop-down.

Anyone see this before?

So i post my first question on answers.atlassian and I get -1 point on my question and -5 points on my profile. Quite the warm welcome. Am I missing some unwritten rule of this board? Is my question unclear or in the wrong place? Do I need to toss my firstborn into a volcano to show my allegiance to Atlassian products?

Well, moot point now as we've reduced the complexity of the workflow. Thinking it has some tie between setting of inside on the server, and adding opsbar-sequence property in each of the transitions to sort their order onscreen. Not sure of the fix but I no longer need it to be.

I wouldn't know why you are being downvoted here. I do know that I see this question a lot. Perhaps someone is sour at reading the same question again, who knows. It's a public forum so plenty of people are free to come and vote and answer.
