Can you add images and/or files to Comments?
For example, in Flyspray you can do this.
It just makes sense: you add a comment and attach a screenshot relevant to that comment. I want to do this in JIRA as well.
If I add an attachment to a ticket, and use the comment field when attaching that file, then JIRA should automagically link the comment to the attachment. The fact that the attachment and comment are totally disconnected in the UI, unless I used wiki markup and manually link them, is in my opinion a defect in JIRA and should be resolved ( JRA-21394 )
The markup that you can use to display the image (after you have attached the image file to the Jira issue) inline in your comment is explained athttps://jira.atlassian.com/secure/WikiRendererHelpAction.jspasection=images
You can embed images inline in JIRA comments using wiki markup. Just attach the image to the issue, and write !ImageFilename.png! in your comment. (replacing ImageFilename with the filename of your image).
If you don't have wiki markup enabled for comments, here are the docs for switching the field from Text Renderer to Wiki Markup Renderer - https://confluence.atlassian.com/display/JIRA/Configuring+Renderers .
Thanks, that can work indeed.
The current way the comment box is designed looks and works great because of its elegancy and simplicity.
A typical Timy MCE bar on top of the comment 'feel' like slowing things down, taking a bit away from the speed of commenting.
You know what would be great, however?
That is if, in the comment field, at the same place of the Pencil on the top right of that field (but only in edit mode, so when the pencil is away), there would be another button you can press that would pop-up the same bar you get when you type a comment in this very comment field on answers.atlassian.com (just bold/italic, bullet, do/undo, link, insert image and code buttons)
I actually noticed the question-mark icon and clicked on it once or more.
Now this is the deal: my role is one as the founder of a start-up, but actually I am not a programmer. I like to invest every effort necessary to make sure everyone in the team (back-end and front-end programmers, designer) have all the details and structure that they need to create an awesome product.
That is why I am so happy with our decision to move to JIRA.
Now I am happy to jump into code regularly, whenever that is useful. But when I type comments about our product development (in JIRA), I want to be 100% focused on the content of the comment. It is unique time that is fully dedicated before I move on to another 'start-up task'. Time I would spend on checking and typing mark-ups is time I cannot spend on talking to investors, marketing, team, logistics, legal, PR, whatever.
For example, even having to type "-" and "space" to get a bullet point is something that I consider a waste of time, and especially of focus (it's a distraction, especially if the bullet list contains more than 2 bullets).
So my request comes from the point of view of the role of a founder.
It would be nice to have the ability to paste from clipboard the image and to get it attached and refrenced with the wiki markup, rather than having to manually attach it and then refrence it. Especially when doing printscreens this would save a lot of time (you no longer have to paste the printscreen and create it as a file locally, no longer has to attach it in jira and then refrence it with ! markup)
