How to switch "Visual" and "Text" model by keyboard, when we edit text type field Edited

Our JIRA upgraded from 6.4.4 to 7.3.8 recently, when we add a comment on a ticket, there has "Text" and "Visual" model, I want to know is there any way to switch these two model by key board?

There is no predefined shortcut key for that. On a mac (not sure if this will work the same on windows) I managed to get there using the following fun sequence:

  • press "," (jump to field for editing)
  • Select the Description field
  • Press [alt]+[tab] (in my case, this selected 'text' mode)
  • Press [alt]+[tab] again (to select 'visual' mode)
  • Press [enter] to select

To do the reverse, it seemed that following the first 3 steps and then pressing [enter] worked as well.

I am not convinced that this is more effective than using a mouse or a touchpad, but it was fun to investigate :-)

Thanks for your help, but it's invalid for us.

We have checked, we can switch "Text" model to "Visual" model by press "Tab" or "Shift+Tab", but we can't switch the model from "Visual" to "Text".

Anyway, thanks for your kindly help again.
