Entire page is "preformatted" and cannot edit

Somehow my fat fingers seem to have changed my entire Confluence doc to preformatted and I can no longer edit.  Any ideas how to undo this formatting?  Of course it's been saved and reloaded so CTR-z isn't working, ugh.

Click the 3 dots menu button (•) and choose "Page History". Choose "Restore" for the version immediately previous to the current version. This should restore your page to how it was before you made the formatting change.

If that wasn't the right one, then you can restore an earlier version until you find the right one, but be aware that restoring an older version doesn't remove the current version from the list. Instead, it creates a new version with the old content.

Thanks but the only version under Page History is "Current".

I published the page and then re-opened to edit and the problem went away.
