When clicking on "Preview" while updating an issue, comments are previewed, but not state changes. It would be better if state changes were displayed as well.

For example, if I change the status from New to Resolved and the Priority from Normal to Urgent, I should see something like this when I click on Preview:

  • Status changed from New to Resolved
  • Priority changed from Normal to Urgent

+1. Also, I need to add more item to it. We use quite a few "Long text" type fields with textile formatting enable. Unfortunately preview doesn't show any of this. Personally, I actually type this first in note then copy paste it there! very ugly if I am modifying an already evolved issue.

Ideally, preview should be pretty much a full preview display allowing to full view of things.

  • Target version set to 2.4.0

Yes I would agree that this should be displayed in the preview too.

I set this as a candidate for 2.4, to get a rough plan of things.
Maybe I can get into it and provide a patch myself.

  • Target version changed from 2.4.0 to Candidate for next major release

2.4 feature freeze

#4 Updated by Go MAEDA 4 months ago

  • Status changed from New to Closed
  • Target version deleted (Candidate for next major release)
  • Resolution set to Wont fix

In Redmine 4.0.0, preview link was removed and the description field has its own preview tab (see #27758). Because of that, showing status changes in the preview will be an awkward interface.
