Hi,

I have defined class in my dsl (in xtext) with various references and attributes.
One of them is
attributeA : EString.

Now in the textual editor, I write it inside double quotes.

attributeA "sometext"

However, when I check it in the tree editor, it still has the double quotes, and I am not expecting that as it is a string, in the tree editor I expect to only see sometext not "sometext".

And the weirdest thing, is that in another class I only have one attribute, lets say attributeB, and in this case in the textual editor I have "sometext", while in the tree editor I have sometext with no double quotes (like I am expecting).

Checked both, and they both look the same. The only different is that attributeB is the only one in that class. Any idea why this could be happening?

I have not defined a value converter. Is something generated by itself or...?
And if I have not defined anything myself, aren't they supposed to be the same?
