It is not set to see the code by default. Somehow it has changed itself, perhaps through some other third party install? All my Macs are set by default to show as text.
Anyway, glad you got it all sorted.
Thanks for the comment.
Must be, as you say, a 3rd party, as I know I didn't set any preferences for TextEdit. Would be interesting to find out which one did it, but have WAY too many to uninstall and find out
Hopefully if anyone else has an issue with files showing the code, they now know they simply need to untick this box.
