Issues in my project, when viewed full-screen mode, show all the wiki markup syntax when you put the issue description in edit-mode. On Jira server you used to be able to switch between 'Visual' and 'Text' modes to hide/show the markup.
This however doesn't occur when putting the description of an issue in edit mode, when viewing the issue in the side panel on a Board.
That is really disgusting that I can not use the markup instead of the visual editor in Jira Cloud.
For example, I cannot set a non-standard text color (i.e. apart from those colors that are present in the color-selector), which is critical when describing, for example, the css styles.
Please return the text editor! That was perfectly working for years (at least for local Jira installations).
If Jira is going to hide the text-edit view, please Atlassian folks, fix your editing bar so that it floats with the window as the user scrolls down. When I write a long ticket, I now have to scroll ALL the way up to the top to do something like change color or apply a heading level.
That is a very bad UX
Hello, I wanted to know how you switch between Visual and Text in Jira Cloud, not if it behaves the same as the server version.
My problem is that when I go to edit a description, the text is all marked up (wiki markup), and there is no option to hide the markup and show the formatted version.
The WYSIWYG editor does NOT provide the same amount of control that editing in Jira markup allows. For example, if I want to create a numbered list with a bulleted sub-list, that can only be done via markup. This capability is essential when I'm creating a list of testing steps that also includes multiple selections beneath a step. Example:
# Select the link to this page.
# Select the following checkboxes:
** Item 1
** Item 2
I'm able to create new jiras in Jira cloud with markup. Why can't I edit existing jira descriptions or other fields using markup?
If Atlassian is removing the markup editing capability, the WYSIWYG editor needs to be improved so it will support all functionality that exists when writing descriptions using markup.
I have the opposite frustration because I like the WYSIWYG view for some of my stakeholders, but they have to see their content in markup when they first create the ticket.
Consistency between create and view would be good, as well as the option to use either WYSIWYG or markup on both you be good to see to.
btw I'm using cloud.
I've a question about "Custom Fields". I want a field just like "Description" which has format panel on the top side. But there is only "Text Field" which I can add. But this is not just like "Description" field. Its is only an empty free-text field. There is no any formatting panel (which allows us to change the style and widht of the writings)... Is there any alternative way to do so?
