Why is Fix/Version field missing on the bulk edit page? Edited

I noticed that when you bulk edit items, if you have items from more than one JIRA project being edited - the Fix/ Version field does not display. I was wondering why that is? In this scenario, all the projects involved use the Fix/Version field. 

The field displays when I bulk edit items within the same project.

Versions are local to projects.  So you can't set versions cross-project.

Thanks for the response. Nic. I've used JIRA for 5 years and didn't know that... :/ 

I appreciate the info.

It's the sort of quirk that makes sense, but you never think about it until you run into it!

Absolutely. I'm actually a little embarrassed I posted the question after seeing your response. :)

I wouldn't be - it took me until version 4 to notice it myself.  I started with version 2...

This is not entirely true. I create cross-project releases which in turn creates a version in each project. Up until last week I was able to bulk change the Fix/Version across multiple projects. Looks recent that it was removed.

Jira doesn't have "cross project versions", so I'm curious as to what you think you were doing there.
