How to use issue templates with "Reference in new issue"

I recently added issue templates to our repository and while they’re great, I’ve found that when I use the feature “Reference in new issue” of clicking on a line in the code to create an issue, it doesn’t seem to work with issue templates. Is there some special macro or something I need to add to my templates to get this to work? I looked through the docs but didn’t see anything. As a workaround, I’m using the “Copy permalink” and carrying that through to the issue. Thanks!

Hi @jonespm,

Thanks for taking the time to report this. I’ve been able to reproduce this and I’ve opened an issue for our team. I don’t have an ETA on a fix right now but this is in good hands.
