Hi All

I want to know is there any significant difference between default text renderer and wiki style renderer.

What I mean is I already have 50 odd projects which confirm to default text renderer and if I switch to wiki style renderer by flipping the button on the default field configuration will it affect in any way to the historic issues that were created with the renderer set as default text?

The data does not change. The renderers just draw it on-screen differently. So you can swap between renderers without any risk beyond the users writing the data as though it's for the wrong renderer.

My other half gave me a good analogy once - glasses. When she and I look at the same picture, we see different things. When I put my glasses on, I see the same as her. Then we try it with sunglasses and see it differently again. The picture has not changed, just the way we look at it.

It will affect all issues - old and new. Renderer just renders what is stored in the database. You can change the renderer and see the same data differently.
