CSS Question

Inlining a dropdown button-group using bootstrap

My problem fiddle is here: https://jsfiddle.net/h3mb08ph/

I'd like to move the "plus" dropdown button-group to the left of the edit button.

Problem

I first moved the div to the correct place, like so: https://jsfiddle.net/h3mb08ph/1/

Slightly better

Next, I tried to convert the

div
to a
span
, or even to change the div's
display
to
inline
or
inline-block
.

This helps achieve the desired layout, but I can no longer expand the dropdown button by clicking on +. Any idea how I can achieve the button layout below, while still allowing the dropdown menu to expand while clicked?

Try it like this:

            Lorem Ipsum is simply dummy text of the printing and typesetting industry. Lorem Ipsum has been the industry's standard dummy text ever since the 1500s, when an unknown printer took a galley of type and scrambled it to make a type specimen book. It has
            survived not only five centuries, but also the leap into electronic typesetting, remaining essentially unchanged. It was popularised in the 1960s with the release of Letraset sheets containing Lorem Ipsum passages, and more recently with desktop
            publishing software like Aldus PageMaker including versions of Lorem Ipsum.
