For the Issues list in any project, once you know that the bulkedit menu is a right click away, it seems so obvious, but for new non-programmer users (ie. analysts and support staff), this can be frustrating. It would be nice to have the bulk edit features available at the top and bottom of the list, or at the very least add in a (Right-click to bulk edit) text blurb at the top and/or bottom to make the process more apparent.

Using right click as the only way to access those features might also make things slightly more complicated for Mac users who do not use a 3rd party mouse or don't have the two-finger tap option turned on. The obvious counterpoint is that users can just Control click, but I don't think that's a reason not to have multiple avenues to a feature and let the user decide which best suits their abilities/workflow/usage patterns.

I will add that it makes doing bulk edits from an iPad impossible. :)

Pretagged as UI team decision.

Somewhat related to #2924. The fix in 1.0 does make it more obvious, which was Eric's goal, but still does nothing for the accessibility / handicapped / no-support-for-touch-devices angle.

Well, maybe there could be some type of condition.

If theres a multiselection, there could be a bulk edit button. But anyway... working from ipad could be handled with some app (which work pretty good).

What do you think? Any suggestion how to integrate this?
