    $\begingroup$ Did you make any changes to your init.m, or did you change any settings before? Does this happen for other Entity[] objects (e.g. the examples in the docs)? $\endgroup$ Commented Feb 27, 2016 at 10:26
  • $\begingroup$ Check that it is the latest version of Mathematica 10.3.1 . There was a bug regarding the connection to Wolfram Research Data center in earlier versions of 10. $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ You need to set or convert cell style to StandardForm. $\endgroup$
