The version of PatternSkin shipped with TWiki 4.2.0, contrary to documentation shipped with it, ignores the setting "Set COMPOSER =".

I've tried disabling the WYSIWYG editor and default to the plain text editor by setting it to an empty value, exactly as specified in the documentation, and there was no effect.

It's documented at:


and in my installation of Pattern skin:


 I only want to show the WYSIWYG button on explicit pages 
 [[https://twiki.altkom.pl/bin/view/Main/TWikiPreferences][Main.TWikiPreferences]], set COMPOSER to a blank value:
   * Set COMPOSER =
In the topic, set the 
COMPOSER variable to kupu:
   * Set COMPOSER = kupu
