If you are using the new editor and use a page properties and add content to it, in the preview and in page properties report the content will render in the legacy editor, instead of the new editor.
- Create a page using the new editor
- insert the page properties macro and some content on it, such as a link
- Make sure to the link be a smart card link
- Publish the page
- In another page, insert a page properties report
The content on the page properties should show the content as the new editor, as the page is in the new editor. In this case, it should keep the smart card link without any issues.
The link is no longer a smart card link and the format of its contents are in the legacy editor.
If you're using a JIRA link, use the JIRA issue macro and insert the jira issues individually inside the table/macro.
Note: The workaround can be applied and will work, however, upon editing the page again, the same will convert back to the link instead of keeping the jira issue macro inside the page properties.
