Calculated custom field script is not working


I´ve installed 'JIRA Misc Custom Fields' and the calculated fields do not work. Log file shows 'CalculatedTextField: could not find formula in custom field description of' and it is not the custom field, because it is as stupid as:

<!-- @@Format:
return "Hello World";

It looks as the Attlassian JIRA cannot pre-compilate the code contained into the description. Do you know if I need another add-on or configuration? We are in the v7.3 and I´ve been working with this add-on in other installation, so I´m very surprised with this.

@@Format is for formatting calculated number fields. The formula for any JMCF calculated custom field is provided in a @@Formula annotation:

<!-- @@Formula:
return "Hello World";


Thank you very much! It was driving me crazy!.

I´ve worked with this unvaluable pluggin a lot and, of course, I´ve never paid attention to the 'exact' word of the beguining ... 

Thanks again.
