Target version:-


When we switch comments to reverse chronological order `action_menu` and div#update are still below History section. This requires either scrolling to the top or to the very bottom of the page to be able to click "edit".
Is it possible to move `action_menu` and `edit` partials above div#history for User.current.wants_comments_in_reverse_order? ?

This could be quite a useful addition to also have the buttons available right above the first history entry.

+1 for this feature.

I usually see comments in reverse chronological order, so I have to scroll up and down frequently when I write comment while referring to recent comments.

Such a change could have heavy consequences for plugins. We need much more requests for this before changing the issue view in this way.

I agree with this function.
When editing, since you often see the latest history.
Scrolling the screen long will reduce operability.
