Redesigned Issue Creation Page

The page for reporting new issues has been restyled to match the updated view for single issues. This version is in early stages of development, so there are still a few key features that have not yet been implemented. Here's what's missing in the experimental version:

  • The ability to search for similar issues is not supported.
  • The option to generate an issue template URL from the current draft has not been implemented yet.

The following animation shows the difference between the previous and updated versions of this page.

This feature is available on an experimental basis. To learn how to enable it, see Experimental Features.

Project Selector

The drop-down list for selecting the project is now located in the page header. This change was applied to address feedback from users who frequently created issues in the wrong project.
