Currently, the user can preview description/notes by clicking "Preview" at the bottom of the page. I think that there are two problems with this functionality.

  • The label "Preview" is too general... I expected to be previewing the whole ticket, not just the description.
  • The preview is displayed at a relative distance to the actual content.

How about trying one of these:

  • Display a full ticket preview.
  • Place the Preview link directly under the description, and also have the preview display there too.
  • Rename "Preview" to "Description Preview"

Preview description if it was edited while updating an issue (#741).


#1 Updated by Phil Hord almost 13 years ago

As mentioned in #2094, the preview is also missing any updates to the original description field.

I think the preview is intended to be used for verifying the wiki-text formatting. I think that is why the notes are the only thing shown in the preview window. However, the Description text should have its own preview "button" if this is the case.

#2 Updated by Jean-Philippe Lang over 12 years ago

  • Subject changed from issues: description/note previews to Description preview while editing an issue
  • Status changed from New to Closed
  • Target version set to 1.0.0 (RC)
  • Resolution set to Fixed

As of r3623, description will be previewed if it was edited.
IMHO, previewing issue attributes doesn't make much sense so I close this ticket.
