I am writing acceptance criteria for a user story where we need to replace a string "-xx-xx-xx-xx" with a string "-xx-1-xx-xx". If I put any kind of text formatting on the "xx" and the "1" to highlight that 'these are the things that are changing', then the text on saving is changed to strikethrough formatting.
I literally cannot create the acceptance criteria as I would like to because of the markup Jira uses to do text formatting. It seems this person was having the same issue, and discovered that this is actually expected behavior, although it is highly undesirable in my case.
How can I stop Jira from transforming this text to strikethrough?
This doesn't help much with cut and paste if you have to go back and edit to reinsert and escape all the dashes. I would rather ask for strikethrough if i want it since it's not used very often. Confluence has a way to disable autoformatting. I haven't been able to find a similar setting for the Jira editor.
