    Hi Alexander! Would you mind elaborating a bit, what do you meanย by 'partial editing'?

    Hi, Pavel

    The only way to edit a description through the api is to paste it fully, but if I edited(Regex, Replace, etc) only a portion of the text, the history(Updated description link) will display that I changed the entire text(screenshot above). May be possible to make it display only the diff between the old description and which I put.

    Hi Alexander! Thank you for the clarification. I am afraid that this is how description editing is designed, as it's not 'live' as it would happen when you type into itย symbol by symbol, but a mass-update via API which in fact re-writes the content as a whole. Would be a good consideration for our product improvement in the field of API though, thank you!

    Hi there,
    Indeed, the problem was quite serious for our workflow, so it turns out that update the description viaย API at the time of editing by users. There is no way to understand that a task is being edited and to understand that we are losing data. ๐Ÿ˜•
