how do i add more items to a workflow drop-down menu in JIRA 6.2?

As we've added more possible workflow transitions, they've begun automatically condensing into the drop-down menu shown on the attached screen shot. This is actually a pretty convenient tool for us, but how can we force the "Modify (Admin)" and "CLEAR (ADMIN) buttons to also move into the drop-down?

There's actually a couple of things you might find useful here...

First, the question you've actually asked.  You can change the number of items that appear before it shoves items into the menu dropdown by setting a property in a file.  See https://confluence.atlassian.com/display/JIRA/Advanced+JIRA+Configuration - the property you need to add is ops.bar.group.size.opsbar-transitions=x  (x is assumed to be 2 if the property is not set).  

Secondly, for a bonus, you might want to edit the workflow.  Because you can "weight" transitions so they always appear in the most useful order for you - adding opsbar-sequence properties to a transition is quite easy ( https://confluence.atlassian.com/display/JIRA/Workflow+properties )
