Unable to write comment after code block (jira comment field)


Jira v7.3.2

Type {code} into the visual editor of the comment box and allow the code block to appear. Type anything inside the code block and then attempt to click outside that code block to see if you can add a comment - this is where the problem is.

The user is unable to click outside the code block to add a comment.

Anyone had this experience?

Hi Guys,

To escape the code block you could hit shift enter to go to the next line. Once a next line is created you should be able to click it.
