Using Tab to complete a ticket and how to avoid the description options.


When I make a new item in Jira. I start in summary and try to tab through but when it hits the description it decides it needs to tab through each of the font settings.

 Can that be changed? or does anyone have any tricks for this?

Thanks we do use Chrome. It could be a browser thing! 

I can't reproduce the behavior using firefox, but do you need to have input in the description at time of creating? If not you could configure fields option on the create screen.

Hi Krista,

Mine does not do that. It tabs straight through just like any other field. I wonder if this is a browser thing but would not think so to be honest. I was using safari just now to test.
