The Problem

Here is how the text editor looks when you face this issue. The Visual tab changes to this small, odd, HTML box. Normally the HTML is in the Text tab, so you know immediately that something is wrong.

It’s Cache.

Just clear your cache. While in the Visual Builder, press Control/Shift/R to do a hard refresh. The builder will reload, and the issue should be cleared. If not, try exiting the builder, do another hard refresh, then open the builder again. If it still is not resolved, follow the steps in the tutorial linked below.

All done.
