This image shows the traditional (on top) and the revised layout as of wmf1.19f9 (on the bottom) of the editor toolbar buttons. The toolbar is made up of two sets, the standard wikimedia toolbar set and the editor button set specific to wikisource. The traditional order is the logical one where the first button controls the display of the header and footer. Reversal of the order causes confusion because we end up clicking on the Bold button.

This and Bug 38218 are related.

Hi ineuw! Sorry that nobody has taken a look at this report yet and given feedback.

Which browser(s) and version does this happen with?
Can this be seen on a public Wikimedia wiki, or is this a private wiki? If private, which MediaWiki version do you run currently, and does this still happen?

This is not WikiEditor extension, but core.
