I am unable to edit the notes of an issue.

I can right click on an issue and select 'Edit'. I am taken to a page which contains fields to edit the notes of the issue. The field is blank where it used to contain the initial description of the issue. Submitting new data does not appear to do anything at all.

I'm using the 0.9 stable release:

#1 Updated by Felix Schäfer about 10 years ago

IIRC the mysql gem doesn't support MySQL 5.1 yet.

Can you confirm this is still an issue, or even possibly update first?

The problem still exists.

You don't happen to be looking for the by-default-hidden issue description? See here for details: RedmineIssues.

#5 Updated by Daniel Scott almost 10 years ago

From your link, I see:

Editing an existing issue's Subject or Description

which does allow me to edit and save the issue's description.

I'm talking about the other way of editing issues:

Right click on an issue and choose "Edit". The notes field is blank and doesn't accept any entered text.

#6 Updated by Felix Schäfer almost 10 years ago

You get exactly the same form either way. Have a look at the top of the edit form if you have the "More" link next to "Change properties", that's the only way to get to the text field for the description.
