You need to tell us what you've tried really.

Personally, I'd take a different approach and edit the actual text that's coming through - https://developer.atlassian.com/display/JIRADEV/Customizing+Text

Hello @Nic Brough _Adaptavist_ I'm trying to use Jira editor in my plugin. But doesn't render properly and don't show the toolbar above the edit area. Can you help me?
