    Add-on works, although it is not a macro. That part's unclear. Considering Atlassian refuses to upgrade the link macro, this is a fine alternative. Mike

    bitvoodoo makes every plugin that Atlassian should have bundled with the core to begin with. I continue to be impressed with each additional plugin by bitvoodoo that I find. I love their PanelBox macro, as well as their NaviTabs macro.
