Custom Field- Free Text Field (unlimited text)


We are using a custom field of category "Free Text Field (unlimited text)".


Does anyone know if this is the same category as the built in JIRA "Description Field".



We are using an app called JIRA Connect Professional on the App Store on iTunes - Apple and when you press return within the app in our "Free Text Field (unlimited text)" custom field, it saves and closes the editing, wheres when we are editing the description field and press return it tabs down as it should.


Any ideas?

Both field types are same. JIRA description is a standard field and the other a custom field, that's all. You might want to check with the app developer for more details on the behavior.
