Next-Gen Issue 'Description' writing/editing help?


Why does the toolbar on the top of the description not stick and scroll with the whole page whilst you are editing a description? Each time you want to add an image or add some formatting you currently have to scroll to the top of the page unless you have remembered the keyboard shortcuts? (adding an image does not appear to have a keyboard shortcut)

Although the new Markdown editor is a good improvement for the new issue view in Jira, it currently gets fixed, so it’s necessary to scroll up and down when the description is too long.

We have a feature request suggesting the implementation of this ability:

Please, click on vote and watch to receive updates about the feature.
