How can I stop JIRA from autocorrecting "JIRA" to "Jira"?

I know I can Ctrl+Z after the word is typed and it changes, but at the time it changes I've already started the next word so Ctrl+Z undoes the wrong thing at that point.


I just want JIRA to stop messing with what I typed. No autocorrect, no Url-> SmartCards, etc. All of that is not necessary and unwanted.

Confluence does this, but I've not seen Jira do it.

Of course, it's not the wrong thing to do - Jira is the trademark and the correct name for it, JIRA is now incorrect, and you shouldn't be using it.

Hi Andrew,

I suspect it is another tool you have running that is doing that, and not Jira itself. Maybe something in your browser or laptop/phone.

I have never had "Jira" autocorrect my typing.

And “Jira” is the proper form. 

Like John Funk likes this

@John Funk  - its only happening in JIRA, not here  or other sites in the same browser.

@Jack  - "Proper" doesnt matter in this case. I typed what I typed. Its not autocorrecting anything else like this. It may be their brand but its not their content.

Jack Community Leader May 28, 2021

Fair enough

I get the exact same autocorrect in Jira comments and when I'm editing a Confluence page, but not in other tabs (like this one) in the same browser.

(I have no issue with this particular auto-correct. Just adding another data point.)

I read about the autocorrection before but I am not able to find it in Community right now.
Testing on my cloud site (just wanted to see that 'live') currently it is not reproducable.

@Andrew Stantonis there something special to do to get it corrected? I tested it in a comment of an Issue in a team-managed project and in a 'description' of an issue.
