How do I link to a jira issue within a comment (in the new issue view)

We are using the new issue view on Jira Cloud. 

When I type a jira issue number (eg. ABC-123) in a comment, it does not automatically link to that issue. If I switch back to the old view, it renders the link properly.

Is there something I am missing?

Hello, @Serena Green 


I had the same issue, but you can still link to an issue in comment section by clicking on  + Link, Then a popup is displayed with your project issues and as you type it filters the tasks.

Good luck :) 

Thank you - we did end up stumbling across the Link function, however it is a step backwards in functionality. The new issue view is terrible.
