Description

You can add the "Files" column to the issues list. In the column, names of the attached files are shown and each filename is linked to the preview page of the file.

I think the UI can be improved to place a download icon beside the filename, like attachments on issue pages or wiki pages. Currently, you need to click twice to download the file (1. click the filename on the issues list, 2. click the download link on the preview page). If the column has download buttons, you can reduce an extra one click.

I am not able to test this currently, but what about right-click -> save as? Doesn't that work in any way?

Unfortunately, it does not work. It saves the HTML content of the preview page (AttachmentsController#show).

Added download buttons to "Files" column. I attached a patch.

In my opinion, there are too many icons in the listing which make the "Files" column more obvious than the other columns (my first reaction is look on that column). If we really want to have the download links available in the listing, what about of showing the icon only on hover?

Thank you for your feedback. Fixed to show the download icon only when hovering.
