when: 2012/10/20

what : the jira issue

where: China

You can create a "Unlimited Text Field" custom field and set the default value to your 5 W's.

Then in your field configuration, you the custom field and hide the description field

How could I create a "Unlimited Text Field" custom field ? Do I need install any plugin to create a "Unlimited Text Field" ?

Now I find "Unlimited Text Field" custom filed when I create a field ,But how could I set the default value to 5W . When I select Unlimited Text Field, there only write describe with this field ,could not set the default value to 5W. How could I solve this problem?
