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.

    I am reorganizing the site I know nobody will notice but I am not done quite yet but the main forums order has been changed and there is a new news category in Other News which is all the remaining headline news stuff not categorized - Headline News is just the stuff that shows on the main page now and the news archive is off the main forums page
