I got the following strange style conversion indicator when I was typing a Pre(character a and Pre separated by a space) in an input cell:

enter image description here

I have no clue why it was triggered and I don't even know this kind of conversion indicator is possible.

So is it a potential bug? Or can you explain this behavior?

Configuration informations:

Mathematica version: 10.0.1

Operating system: Windows 8.1

Edit: Now I realized that it is possible to convert the style of a cell by literally typing Convert to ...in an input cell. But can you enlighten me where this feature is documented?

  • $\begingroup$ That's OK. It helps to read the pop-up description on tags; in this case it reads: "This tag is reserved for questions where the problem has been vetted by this community and the observed behavior is confirmed to be a bug. Please do not use this tag for new questions." $\endgroup$ – Mr.Wizard Oct 3 '14 at 19:48
  • $\begingroup$ @Mr.Wizard Oh, got it. Thanks for the tip! $\endgroup$ – Naitree Oct 3 '14 at 19:55
