Hi @Raju_Kotha 

Can you confirm that the Wiki Style Renderer is used for the description field? You can check this at the Field Configuration page. 

Ensure you have the right renderer (Wiki Style Renderer) selected

In View Field Configuration page you should see:



if there is another renderer is selected you should edit it from "Renderers" link (at the right handside of the row)

Edit screen:


Hi @destan 

Not sure if my issue is the same @Adrian had. 

I have checked and I have the "Wiki Style Renderer" set for the Description field. 

When I click "Create" button I do see options for text formatting but the interaction is far not the same as when I editing the same field after the issue is actually created.

Do you have any idea if this is possible to have the description filed on "Create issue" popup look the same?


Many thanks.
