    Description

      Context

      Since 2019 Jira is implementing a new editor (as long as a new issue view), which is composed by a WYSIWYG editor that works with markdown syntax as well. It would be great if Atlassian shipped an editor without the WYSIWYG features, where users would insert plain text markdown and would be formatted accordingly.

      Bitbucket already has this feature.

      Why this is important?

      There can be more reasons why some users would prefer text-only editing. Including

      • Improve productivity by having fewer clicks (everything would be formatted using the keyboard).
      • Avoid WYSIWYG problems
      • Eases the task of pasting already formatted code

      Proposed Solution

      • Have an option to switch from Visual (WYSIWYG) to Text Only editor
