Return to showing != for not equals? Follow
Recently the IDE started displaying the not equals sign in Java code rather than the "!=". Is there a way to disable that and let me see the text I actually typed rather than the changed text?

I had to uncheck Settings (Preferences on macOS) | Editor | Reader mode | Font ligatures
Once I unchecked this, IDEA went back to displaying the "real characters"
Looks like you mean font ligatures. You can disable them in
Settings (Preferences on macOS) | Editor | Font | Enable font ligatures or
Settings (Preferences on macOS) | Editor | Color Scheme | Color Scheme Font | Enable font ligatures.

Thanks for the answer. I checked both and the Enable font ligatures already were not checked.
Thank you for the information. The Reader Mode has been introduced recently for read-only files and files from External Libraries. This makes it easier to read comments because they look like formatted text. We plan to make the configuration of Reader Mode more obvious in scope of this request: https://youtrack.jetbrains.com/issue/IDEA-256658
Thanks Mmontgom, that did the trick. Note for others, the change doesn't show up until you restart the IDE.
