In the previous JIRA issue layout, you could click outside the description body whilst editing in order to save any changes you had made. However in 'next-gen' you now have to scroll to the bottom of the ticket and action the 'Save' button in order to save any changes. Is there a shortcut to save or is this another feature which is forcing the user to scroll up and down the page to perform simple actions?
Thank you for reaching out.
I understand that you are not being able to save your description content in a faster way than to scroll it down until the save button and clicking on it.
The shortcut to save any field content (Including description) when editing it on JIRA is:
On macOS -> Command + Enter
On Windows -> Ctrl + Enter
This shortcut is usually used to submit forms in other web-applications, however, I agree that it should be documented to our shortcut list placed under the menu at the bottom left of the screen.
That being said, I created the following feature request to get it added to that list:
