Jira issues?

Have found no reasonable way to suggest improvements for the Jira itself. :(
Hope this message will be read by people from IntelliJ and they will consider the following notes: (and describe how to submit the new ones)

- is there any way to make Create Issue page to fit on screen without scrolling? I have 1280x1024 and still have to scroll the page to click Create button. :(

- IMHO Text Search should consider partial matches, i.e. searching for "librar" should find both "library" and "libraries". Currently it will find nothing. :(

Please try jira.atlassian.com .

Yes, same here. But I think, this is a general problem with
web-applications. If the page is made to fit on 1024x768, people with
1280x1024 will complain about the wasted space and that they could not see
the full content.

Yes, the search is an absolut horror. My co-worker previous wanted to search
for "flächen", but "flächenberechnung" was not found. "flächen*" also did
not found it. And you also could not search for issues, which do NOT contain
a string. In short: the used search engine (lucene?) is absolut crap.

It's possible to tweak Jira instance and decrease number rows in Description field to for example 5-7.

Jira uses Lucene for searching so its syntax used.

TIA,

You can search for wildcards - librar* - the search is using lucene, so
a lookup of lucence's wildcard/queries might help.

Of course this is possible, but it does not solve the problem for all screen
resolutions as I tried to sketch it.

The JSPs for the search pages could be tweaked and changed, but what
would we change? I've often thought having additional "create" buttons
at the top of the form would be handy. As I'm often only scrolling to
find the submit button, and not enter any content.

Yes, the search sucks. Who uses OR searches anymore? I think every major
search engine on the planet uses AND searches by default.

I disagree with this statement quite strongly. I've used Lucene on a couple
of large projects to index and search huge volumes of data with excellent
results. It's a very powerful (and fast) engine, in many ways far superior
to extremely expensive commercial offerings. However on the downside it does
take a reasonable amount of effort to get it working effectively - it's very
much a low-level API rather than an a quick drop in solution. I have no idea
how Jira is using Lucene but I'd hazard a guess and say that Atlassian need
to spend a bit of effort in improving the way they're using the Lucene API.

I'm not affiliated with Lucene in any way, just a satisfied user.

Chris, I only judged from JIRA's search of Lucene's capabilities. Sorry,
if it is more powerful than JIRA let me use it.

Yet another issue: when trying to see open issues by priority from project home page (e.g. http://www.jetbrains.net/jira/secure/BrowseProject.jspa?id=10132) no project id is specified in target URL ("..pid=&..") so issues from all the projects are shown. :(
