    this is not a bug, it's a feature and it's called AutoFormat. :)

    The next time it happens, try to click [CTRL] + [Z] to undo the change. Or you can turn off AutoFormat. Likewise, you can turn off AutoCorrect (spelling mistakes).

    Please let us know whether this solved your question. Thank you!

      Thank you for the tip. By deleting 'Change (R) into ®' in Auto Correct the problem was solved.
