how do i prevent overwriting when I want to insert text?

I'm composing meeting notes to share with my team and the editor keeps overwriting when I try to go insert text in my notes–driving me mad. How do I change from overwrite to insert?

It's not the editor that is the issue. It's your keyboard. There is an insert button on your keyboard that toggles between insert and overwrite.

I'm on Chrome and I had this issue.  It's definitely not my keyboard/browser.  I pressed the insert key several times and couldn't get it to go away.  I switched over to Gmail to compose an email and it wasn't in insert mode.

The only solution I could find was to logout of JIRA and log back in again.  That seemed to make it go away.
