[Jira] Possible to use a "Rich-Client"-editor to enter a description (or custom textfield)

Hello everyone,

we use Confluence and Jira 5.1.8 (+ Greenhopper). I have configured, that the text is renderer by the "Wiki-Markup-Renderer". Sadly, it seems to be only possible to enter the WIKI-Markup-Language.

What is need is a "rich-client" editor, like in confluence, so the user can enter a formatted text without knowledge of the Markup.

Is this possible in any way?

Best regards

This widget could not be displayed.

I've never used the plugin but that might be the one you're looking for:

BTW, that would have been the second Google hit for "jira rich text editor" :-)

Hello Christian,

thanks for your reply. I also found this plugin. Since this plugin must be payed and i "only" wanted

the existing functionality, i'm searching for an build-in-solution.

But thanks for your answer. ;-)
