This WYSIWYG editor:
Thanks for reading.
Thanks for reaching out to Atlassian Community.
1 - Is it possible to modify the WYSIWYG buttons? Are they configurable?
It's not possible to configure the buttons that appear on the editor.
2 - Is it possible to turn off WYSIWYG mode?
Currently, the new issue view has only this option, if you want to use the old editor, you can disable it by going to your Profile picture > Personal settings > Disable Jira Labs (note that it will not be disabled to Jira Core and Next-Gen projects).
3 - Is there Markdown support for cloud-hosted users?
Currently, markdown is only available for the new issue view, it includes next-gen and business projects. If the Jira Labs is enabled, it will also work for classic projects.
4 - Can I modify the keyboard shortcuts?
This option is also not available.
For the settings that are not available, please feel free to raise a feature request on jira.atlassian.com adding more details about why this would be important for your environment.
Just an update here for 2.
This setting is now located in:
Profile picture > JIRA: Settings > find the "Labs" toggle.
Note also that (from what I've seen), this doesn't turn it off on next-gen projects. You're stuck with the WYSIWYG there and no obvious way to switch to the standard editor.
PLS, give me opportunity switch to SIMPLE MarkDown EVERYWHERE! Your WISYWIG does not work correctly! IT can't paste (and paste doesn't work at firefox) MD as normal text, 'Enter' button works randomly. It's really stupid idea to create yourself WISYWIG (and internet has TOO MAAAANY posts about "Why do not create yourself WISYWIG" and every weak junior (and very strong senior) MUST know it)
Try to use YouTrack when you wanna look "How do it correctly?"
The new editor is terrible. I don't want WYSIWYG / Rich Text, and I absolutely DO NOT want real-time auto conversion of markdown (or wikimarkup). If I wanted a poor UX for editing text, I would use Word. What I and most serious users want is to be able to write and edit comments without having to break our flow to constantly fix the editor's annoying mistakes.
Slack broke their comment editor in the same way you have broken your editor, and it was awful. Fortunately, they listened to their users, and made it possible to disable the wretched thing. I know how Atlassian works, unfortunately, so I know that there's little chance you will listen and give your power users the option to not have to use your equally wretched editor.
Stop trying to help casual or lazy users at the expense of power users. Wikimarkup and Markdown are easy to use and read. Forcing a broken rich text editor on people is terrible UX. If these editors worked properly 99% of the time, they would be still be bloody annoying, but they would at least be tolerable. Yours doesn't work. Every time you "improve" your editors, you make them worse for power users.
Every. Single. Time.
This WYSINWYW (what you see is not what you want) editor might be ok for non-technical users, but any developer is struggling with things like this.
I cannot add any tables from mysql-console output as a jira table (had nice formatting with "|" ), it gives me headaches to insert code-snippets or something. It feels like "turn the 2nd-leftmost key into position 3 on the right panel to activate the turning signals" in my car...
Please give us back the old "source" editor.
