jira multi-line text custom field configured as wiki renderer but shows as plain text field

I am using jira v7.4.2 and I am an admin.

Yesterday, I added a few multi-line text custom fields and configured them as wiki renderer and it worked fine.

Today, I added a few more and configured to use wiki renderer the same way I did yesterday; however, interestingly all custom fields added today are showing as normal text editors instead of rich text editors. 

I changed them back to text editor and then again back to wiki renderer but still shows as just simiple textarea.

Is there a limit on how many custom fields I can configure as wiki renderer?

I currently have about 10 custom multi-line texts configured as wiki renderer and I need more.

Hi Andrew,

There are no limits on how many custom fields can use wiki renderer.

I suspect it might be a configuration issue. Can you please try the solution provided at https://community.atlassian.com/t5/JIRA-questions/Troubles-with-wiki-style-renderer-for-custom-field-text-field/qaq-p/265301

Specifically, the field configuration your project is using.
