    Bug in visual Text editor Every time when you edit and save Description in Visual mode of any Items – The plugin will automatically add one new line at the end on all {code}…{code} block. However the issue is not available in text editor mode. This creates issue when multiple updates are made in the visual text editor and we obtain multiple new blank lines added at the bottom of the code. We are using version 1.0.84.

    Hello Mohamed!

    In order to have full experience please make sure that you have installed and enabled JIRA Wiki Editor Plugin.

    Image paste unforunately is supported only in JIRA 7.0+.

    Hello everyone, thanks for your plugin. I found one bug in visual mode. If you attach an image editor, image will be displayed, but after I post comment, is not displayed image, only non-existent path to it. For example: Unable to render embedded object: File (../secure/thumbnail/50980/macro.png) not found. We use JIRA 7.1.4. Thanks for fix this.
