Hi Michael,

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.

Regards,
Angélica

Thanks for taking the time to reply and help, I really appreciate it!

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.
