Jira > Deactivate autocorrect in Jira issues, comments, etc

I'd like to disable autocorrect in Jira issues and comments.

I've hunted through the Jira help but have found nothing for 'autocorrect', 'auto correct', 'spellcheck' or 'spell check'.

I've also hunted through the Confluence questions and there are no solutions there either.

It's not my browser doing autocorrect as I can type JIRA without being corrected, but if I do the same IN Jira, it's converted to lower-case.

I've hunted through Jira settings and can only find a global autocorrect which is turned ON.

Jira version is -

Hello Lisa,

Welcome to Atlassian Community. It's nice to have you!

Jira will autocorrect our product names to the proper capitalization, per our Branding Change in 2017. So for example:

  • JIRA > Jira
  • BitBucket > Bitbucket
  • HipChat (RIP) > Hipchat

It shouldn't be autocorrecting the spelling anything besides that. Can you let me know what kinds of things besides the Jira branding that it was correcting?

Regards,

Shannon

Hi Shannon,

Thanks for the reply.

I can totally understand the creation of branding guidelines for your own purposes.

However, I'm making no representations to anyone on your behalf, nor attempting to use the brands for my own purposes. Nor am I trying to sell something using your brands. 

I'm just attempting to communicate with the people I work with. I might need to highlight the "brand" for our own purposes. If I want to capitalize it, I'll capitalize it.

Or is there some rule somewhere that I've missed?

Thanks

L.

Hello Lisa,

I understand, thank you so much for the feedback.

I've created a feature request below for this:

  • JRACLOUD-73120 Ability to disable autocorrecting of Atlassian product names in new editor

There's also an existing one for Confluence:

There's not a way to turn it off at the moment, but if you type ctrl+Z (Windows) or cmd+Z (macOS) immediately after the editor makes the change, it'll revert back to to the way you typed it.

Thank you again and have a pleasant weekend.

Regards,

Shannon
