Issue #4408 resolved

Add attachments with comment (BB-5038)

I recall it was possible to add attachments with a comment on the issue tracker but now it seems they have to be done separately. It's also a pain to have to scroll way back up to do find the attach files link.

    I wrote a comment for one issue and before submitting it decided to attach a couple of patches, unaware that this is a really bad idea. The result: I've got a patch attached and my comment sent to /dev/null, so I was forced to rewrite it from memory. This is a serious usability issue.

    Apologies for the inconvenience, we recently deployed a number of fixes to the issue tracker.

    You can now attach files and comment via the 'Attach files' link in the more menu.

    Hope this helps.

    It's better than nothing, but it's still a pain to have the attach button all the way at the top. It's also really annoying that those files are displayed at the top of the issue, and not together with the comment that I entered when I attached them.

    You haven't fully addressed Audrius Kažukauskas' complaint either. If I start writing a comment and then decide to attach a file, I have to cut what I wrote already from one textbox and paste it into another to submit it with the file.

    There is a fundamental flaw in the the whole notion that submitting a comment with no attachments is intrinsically different from submitting a comment with attachments. As long as your UI is based on that assumption, your UI will be flawed.
