Missing the preview

Hello, with the new "answers.atlassian" on Confluence I am missing the preview. It was quite helpful.

+1. The confluence code macro is horrific, it frequently misinterprets pastes containing new lines. You definitely need to preview before you commit that shizzle.

Howdy Jose,

There is a ticket dealing with adding Preview functionality into Confluence Questions at CQ-1133. I recommend voting and commenting there, in addition you can watch it to see updates as they are occurring.

Thanks for raising this. I assume you're wanting this for previewing code snippets? We're tracking this request at CQ-1133.

In the referenced CQ-1133 there is mentioned [here|https://jira.atlassian.com/browse/CQ-1133?focusedCommentId=631629&page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel#comment-631629]: {quote} We didn't add one because the editor is WYSIWYG so the preview would look the same as what you already see in the editor.{quote} But what about the comment field: It is not WYSIWYG.

Rich text comments is another feature we want to get to https://jira.atlassian.com/browse/CQ-458

Bill, I was mentioning about those two things in my feedback when I saw beta version of the CQ. That is why CQ-1133 was created. As you can see is it is pretty important feature to have it. I hope that the rest of the features reported in the beta phase will be also implemented soon. Mirek

You see, the comment field does not have a preview, and there is no WYSIWYG editor. And furthermore, the author does not have yet the possibility to edit his comment.

we're tracking the edit comments request at https://jira.atlassian.com/browse/CQ-265

also, you should have WYSIWYG in comments although you won't see the editor toolbar if you're on a small screen / mobile device in order to save screen real estate.

No, I didn't use my mobile while posting the comment.
