Keep the text in the curly braces can help you out. Moreover if you are interested in tracking couriers then can check online. You can try other styles as well.

Hey, I am also looking at how to edit the description with monospace. Have you found the solution? If yes, please share with me. Regards: Best America made binoculars

Hi Imre,

Place the text in between a pair of two curly braces. Example


Have a look at for more text effects.



Does this solution still work? I would like to be able to sometimes add a bit of code to a comment and would like to change the font to identify as such but putting double curly braces surrounding it does not work, nor any similar ways I have tried.

However, I just noticed in the formats dropdown here there is a Code Block option I would like to try but it is not in the toolbar on my Jira board. 


 Console.WriteLine("Hello World!"); 

// Keep the console window open in debug mode.
"Press any key to exit.");
