Reading View


The reading view displays the items in a tree folder in a format designed for convenient reading. To access the view, select a folder or an issue in the tree and then select the Reading View icon.

The reading view displays images inline, both in requirements and folders. You can attach images to requirements or folders and add links in their descriptions to achieve this.


Open issue view

Select the issue key of a requirement to open the issue in its last selected view. If a requirement is included in multiple project trees you can select one of the projects.

Context menu

Click on the ellipsis on the left side of the issue key in the issue key column to see available operations in the context menu, which provides the same options provided in the tree view. See

Configure Display Fields

See Display Fields Configuration.


The summary, description, and most fields under the “Details“ section of requirements and folders can be edited inline in the reading view. Note that, while most fields have been verified, custom field types and fields coming from third-party vendors may or may not be editable.

Issue editing and field editing permissions, as well as Edit screen configurations, apply when inline editing. Read-only fields also remain un-editable. Changes applied to items in the detail view are saved automatically when navigating away from the field. Additionally, changes can be saved or cancelled explicitly through the Save and Cancel buttons.

Jira administrators can enable/disable inline editing capabilities in R4J by setting “Allow inline editing“ permissions.
