I'm used to writing ticket descriptions in markdown, but the new Jira issue view doesn't let me switch to writing in markdown. E.g. writing *As a* will not put the text in bold anymore after saving, and leaves the asterisks visible.
Does anyone know what I'm doing wrong?
Hi @Fred Clarke
Good day. Hope you are doing good.
As per this Article, For Bold, you should be using **double asterisks**
Common markdown formatting options:
## for H2 style (we support H2–H5)
**bold** for bold
*italic* for italic
``` for a code block
* for bulleted lists (like this one 😉)
1. for numbered lists
