The 'e' keyboard shortcut is no longer working on my backlog view. Since the sidebar does not allow me to update epics or the original/remaining estimates individually, this is requiring me to first open the ticket in a new tab and then edit.
Is this a bug in the new version or did they remove this shortcut from the backlog view?
The "E" shortcut seems not be working due to the *New Jira issue view* is enabled in your instance.
For the New Jira issue view, this shortcut is no longer being used and this is a expected behaviour since the issue is shown directly on the screen and you are able to edit it.
Currently, you can disable the *New Jira issue view* and the "E" will be back to work.
Also, you can find more information about this feature in the following documentation:
As the OP wrote: The issue as shown on the screen does not allow to edit the same fields as the edit mode. Together with fields having different labels depending on the view this is the most annoying/confusing thing you built into your tool.
Generally: why for the love of god would you remove a shortcut functionality (that you still list in your documentation). PLEASE BRING IT BACK!
Wow I can't believe they took this away and added "good news, now you can type `l` to add labels". What a joke.
BRING THIS BACK! KEYBOARD >>>>>>>> MOUSE
The accepted 'answer' "this is not working because we decided to make it not work" is correct but fully unacceptable. In Jira (and AFAIK also in Confluence) the 'e' for edit key is my most used shortcut.
@Gabriel CoriiuLooking at the storm of protest above I would kindly request to reconsider this 'feature'.
BTW My 'I'm new here' status is not correct. Seems all my mojo was deleted when I had to change to a new login due to a renaming of my company and thus my email address. Thanks :-(
Actually it was working for our organisation ... until I think 3 weeks ago when a new "UI theme" was rolled out.
What's the news on this issue Atlassian folks?
My guesstimate is we're losing 80man-hours a year with the absence of this shortcut key.
Please address this. I love JIRA as it is, but without this shortcut key it just makes it hard and wasteful to use.
part of the reason that I use your products is for time saving and unfortunately removing the keyboard shortcuts with the rollout of your new UI has certainly cost me time and I don't think it was highlighted early.
I do like the new UI and find better in some ways.
Is re-enabling of important keyboard shortcuts on your nearterm roadmap?
How many people have to request a feature, and for how long do they need to request it, before you pay attention to what your user base actually wants? Did you do any research at all that resulted in your removal of the ability to edit an issue via a shortcut key?
