adding long comments via code block macro, no more scrollbar

I used to use {code} for embracing long texts like error logs or similiar, and in an older version of JIRA it would put it in a fixed-sized window and add a scrollbar automatically.

Now the {code} {panel} tags are not registered. I can access the macros via / , but then again I have no means to set any parameter.

Is this simply not possible anymore?

Any other way?

Hi Reinhard,

Thank you for getting in touch with Atlassian Community!

I tested on my local site and there is no way to add the scroll bar to a code block. Even if we add the {code} on using the old view, on the new view it will show only one line.

Based on your question, I created a feature request suggesting it to show the same as the old view:

Hi Angélica,

Thanks for your reply.

In your video it shows how it used to. With big text you had 2 scrollbars (horizontal and vertical).

I'm afraid there is no way to switch back to old view in cloud, is it?



If you are using a next-gen project, it's not possible because the new issue view is part of this new type of project.

If you are using a classic project, you can go to your Profile picture > Settings and disable Jira labs, then all your classic projects will show the old view.

Note that this will affect only your profile, so each user must change it on their own profile.

That's it. TYVM!
