Know Jira issue number before saving issue?

Is it possible to display the Jira issue number of a new issue that is in the process of being created before the issue is saved (maybe by putting a temporary lock on an issue number until it is saved/stored or not saved/released)?

We add attachments to most of our issues, and we name them with the issue number. Knowing the issue number prior to the save would keep us from having to add the attachments and save again after the first save.

Short answer is no. The issue key is not set until the issue is created.
