How to add Custom field with rich text ?

Just like the Description and Comments field have it. I added one but it is plain text
I want to add a separate field with developers comments.

Have a look at the "field configuration" for the project//issue type.  Check that your field's "renderer" is set to something other than "plain text"


THANK YOU !! For some reason, this wasns't easy to find in the documentation smile

I can't find this setting from the accepted answer. Sorry, I'm new to Jira!

Start with the project settings page and look for "field configuration scheme", you should be able to drill down from there.

Got it, thanks! 

This helped me a lot.  Thank you!
