I would like an enhanced custom large text field for issues. Essentially, I'd like to add a field that works akin to the description. The description field is larger on input than a customer large text field. And, on display, it gets its own line. That is, a customer large text field is in a two-column display, so it only gets half the space.

My intent is to add a "to do" field to an issue. This field will hold the final outcome of the issue as to what needs to be done while preserving the user's original description input. After an issue has been added, I'd like to use this field to list what needs to be done. The business analyst, developer, and the tester could modify this field as needed for requirements tracibility. The current custom large text field can be used; it's just difficult to use because the area for input and display are limited.
