On text edit boxes in Jira, can you add a button to preview your text so that Jira markdown can be reviewed before saving.

On all text edit boxes in Jira, can you add a button to preview your text so that Jira markdown can be reviewed before saving.  Things like the headline text box would not be necessary, but the main edit boxes it would help to allow the user to preview what they wrote so that they could view the JIRA markdown before saving.  In our version of JIRA some state transitions don't let you edit what you entered so if you messed up some markdown, it can't be fixed.

I think you're using an old version of JIRA - more recent ones have a WYSIWYG editor so you don' need a preview
