Something very weird is happening

Alright, so I made an ability with 300 levels, don't ask me why I did, I just had an idea for something. Well, anyway, I realized it was a stupid idea and tried deleting the ability that had 300 levels. After deleting it, something strange happened to my editor. All the names of options and abilities etc. changed into abbreviations (logical abbreviations, but whatever) with the full name in parenthesis next to it. This is by no means simple to explain, so here is a picture:

As you can see, it's different, and difficult to use. It works fine, but I am not ok with this. I looked in the preferences to see if there was anything pertaining to this, but I couldn't find anything. I even reinstalled the entire game, and sure enough, the problem didn't go away. Has anyone seen this before?

Also, it is like this on every map, and I'm on a mac, but that shouldn't matter.

Wait... You reinstalled the game? :D

This is no bug, it's a feature. It allows you to see the raw values of units and of their stats to use them in triggers or ability descriptions.
To toggle this press control-D in the object editor.

what you see is the raw code, do as glenphir said to change it back.

Well that's just great. Now I feel like an enormous idiot. Still leaves the question as to why the editor turned this function on by itself.

    Is the school system in your country similar to Chinese school system? I could never imagine being a teacher in a Chinese school, what's expected of students and teachers is just so different from what I'd be looking for as a teacher
  • vypur85 vypur85:
    A Levels is based on the UK syllabus offered internationally. So the syllabus is similar throughout different countries, taught in english.
  • vypur85 vypur85:
    I can't speak or write or read much chinese... Too difficult....... Which also makes my life here in china a lil difficult.
  • jonas jonas:
    Oh, I see. I thought Chinese version of A-levels :D
  • jonas jonas:

  • jonas jonas:

    @jonas Those were the things I did too. Translate app and VPN are always the most important things to have to survive. Lol.
  • vypur85 vypur85:
    Yea I came last year. I was quarantined for about 30 days. Fml. The first day of my quarantine was the eve of Chinese new year last year. Fml again... Lol.
  • vypur85 vypur85:
    @tom_mai78101 IIRC you're from Taiwan right.
  • The Helper The Helper:
    I thought China had cracked down on having any foreign teachers?
  • vypur85 vypur85:
    Yeah I've heard of the news before. My school is still actively hiring foreign teachers. Not sure how things work now.
  • The Helper The Helper:
    yeah it is hard to get reliable information about that kind of stuff
  • The Helper The Helper:
    but you are doing it so it is still doable
  • vypur85 vypur85:
    I think it doesn't affect existing foreign teachers. Then again, its still weird that my school is hiring.
  • The Helper The Helper:
