In the new issue view I can't see how to do two things:
Add a link to a website. In the old view adding a link had three options: JIRA issue, Confluence page, Weblink. Now, I only have the JIRA Issue option, and all the links added to issue prior to the change are now hidden. This second part is serious as we used those links to reference important pages.
Auto link to an Issue. When adding the key of an issue to a comment or description the text editor would convert it to a link to the issue automatically. It no longer does this which is sad...
Is there a way to recover either of these in the new view?
Thank you for getting in touch with Atlassian Community!
Currently, the option to link Jira Issue, Web Link and Confluence pages since the External Web Links is not available on the new issue view.
We have two feature requests related to this:

The new issue view is optional for classic projects, you can disable it by going to your Profile picture > Personal settings and disable the Jira Labs.
New issue view is specific for next-gen projects, but it was also released for classic as optional.
