The switcheditor button, for switching between wikitext and visual editor modes, is currently not intuitive.
Experienced editors who want to write their posts in wikitext, are not finding the button at all easily.
A number of editors have been confused about this.
I never clicked that. Looks like right floating code editor button. - https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Topic:Sn2g1yop0frbj7y7
It's only because I was certain there *had* to be a way to switch to wikitext that I tried the </> symbol, and that certainty only came with years of having been around. - https://www.mediawiki.org/w/index.php?title=Topic:Siiavth54u8a0rm8&topic_showPostId=sikd1mt2owy5vlq0#flow-post-sikd1mt2owy5vlq0
IMHO the icon "</>" is not intuitive. - https://www.mediawiki.org/w/index.php?title=Topic:Slu4py5cz7hixc06&topic_showPostId=slwbfywln5g9py08#flow-post-slwbfywln5g9py08
And I just realised what the "</>" was for: switching between the text-based version of the message and the pretty version. - https://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Topic:Smus7udrlabe838h&topic_showPostId=smuvmmdu3x9sh939#flow-post-smuvmmdu3x9sh939
- Perhaps use a text string? (clearest)
- Perhaps also use the same icon as VE does for switching to wikitext?
