No useful rich text editor AddOn available in JIRA Cloud

Why isn't there any useful rich text editor AddOn available in JIRA Cloud, like JEditor?

We've used the server version of JIRA and want to migrate to JIRA cloud. We need to layout a lot of issue descriptions in HTML and we are using the JEditor AddOn for that. Why isn't there any usable rich text editor AddOn available in JIRA Cloud which can handle these HTML contents? Simple Editor is no choice, because it just has really limited functionality.

I migrated from my on premise JIRA to cloud as follows

---> to JIRA cloud with the "Simple Edit WYSIWYG editor for Jira Cloud" Version: 1.2.40-AC installed 


However with that markups that were used by the JEditor text are not causing text formatting - the markups are displayed in text  as is  -
