How to create a new paragraph with latest UI update

Previous to the latest UI update, this was accurate:

https://jira.atlassian.com/secure/WikiRendererHelpAction.jspa?section=breaks

 

And leaving an empty line in the edited description of a story or bug created a new paragraph.

 

But now, leaving one or more empty lines do not create a new paragraph.  How can it be done?

Hi Sergio,

Sorry to hear that our documentation appears to be lacking in this regard.  I created a new bug to track this change as a bug in https://jira.atlassian.com/browse/JRACLOUD-67845

I found that leaving a single line of text does not create a view that looks like a new paragraph either in the new Jira UI.

But in my testing I found it appears possible to do this if you leave 3 empty lines between blocks of text. I also found you could hold the Shift key while you press Enter twice in order to achieve this same view.  I hope this helps.

Regards,
Andy
