Rich text editor
You can add a description to a ticket using Constructor's rich Markdown-aware text editor. The same editor is also used for discussion comments.
A ticket description is useful for explaining in detail what the ticket is about and what needs to be done to complete it. For example, use it to describe the key behavior of a new feature, to lay out the steps for reproducing a bug, or to link to related artifacts like designs or specs.
