      Atlassian Update - 12th November 2021

      Hi Everyone,

      A quick update. We have completed our Beta testing of the new Issue Create modal and the results have been very positive. We are now planning to roll out the new modal to all customers starting December 2021 through January 2022. The new Issue Create modal will be consistent with the Issue View modal in terms of markdown support. 

      Thank you!

      Summary

      When creating an Issue in Jira, text Wiki renderable fields such as the Description field are displayed in text mode which does not format the markdown syntax. This happens because the Create Issue screen still uses the old view.

      This means that on the Create screen, you're seeing a bunch of symbols (+,*,-,{) and need to rely on knowing the syntax and seeing the output after creating the issue or by changing the field to "view" mode.

      bold
      italic
      colour
      strikethrough

      Suggestion

      Apply the new Jira issue view in the Create Issue screen so the formatting of the Wiki markdown is clearly visible.
