Yes, as long as you can identify an object to hang the code off of. I done it for checkboxes and radio buttons to get them to go across a page instead of down a page.

Hi Norman, that is the question, how to identify an object to hang the code off of, do I need to define a new custom field type and hang the code on the new custom field's vm file?

I know how to hang code to a custom field with following code in atlassian-plugin.xml file, but how to do that for a default one?

<customfield-type key="clarityproject" name="${project.name}" class="Class Name">

		<description>Choose a Clarity Project from a search list of possible matches.</description>

		<resource type="velocity" name="view"
			location="templates/plugins/fields/view/view-basictext.vm" />
		<resource type="velocity" name="column-view"
			location="templates/plugins/fields/view/view-limited-text.vm" />
		<resource type="velocity" name="xml"
			location="templates/plugins/fields/xml/xml-basictext.vm" />
		<resource type="velocity" name="edit" 
			location="/edit-project-project.vm" />


You need to look at the generated source code page that the browser rendered. Then figure out what combination of ids, classes or tags you need to reach the object you want. It is hard to be more specific without an example.
