How can I type text in a JIRA issue that contains underscores and slashes and curly brackets without it automatically changing text format to italics, etc.?  I need to be able to enter code literally.  Using the preformatted does not work.


As always, I do not know the difference between JIRA core and JIRA software.

You can also escape characters by using a backslash. For example \(
