how to retain code block syntax

When a code block is created in the comment section, the space/new lines change.

For example, if I paste the below code,

db.Connection.autocommit = True
i = 0


it turns to ,

db.Connection.autocommit = True i = 0


How can I retain my code block ?

Hi @Vadiraj Joish 

Can you please let me know which mode you are using for comment text mode or visual mode as on both modes I am able to see that it's working as expected.

I have past experience with visual mode where some extra lines are get added on the bottom when code block macro is used in Jira comment.

Can you try adding a paragraph of 5-6 lines and see if add as a new lines or not, because sometime these issues are wired but fix by changing the modes and then comment.

Visual mode doesn't retain the syntax as pasted.
