From 'Profile' -> 'Look and Layout' uncheck the 'Show WYSIWYG editor on post page by default.' (the link will get you there):  https://www.eevblog.com/forum/profile/?area=theme

Ah. Mine is off, hence no weirdness. :-+ Maybe I did run into this long, long ago and have since forgotten.

Thanks for the tip!
I wonder if it is working for me?

PS:
It seems to wok! Great!
It was really annoying!

Now, that raises the question, why on earth would they set that flag by default?
Why is such a flag needed at all?
That flag must not have been always set (and I did not set it!), some time ago I did not have that problem!

Thanks, Peter

Typically for backward compatibility - but also user preference.

A WYSIWYG editor would not have been in early versions of SMF and people using it then would have become used to working with it that way, so to add a new feature and unnecessarily force everyone to use it would have caused a major backlash.

Besides, there are many of us who want to work at the mechanical level - because we like to.
