@elliot, thanks so much for looking into this. I just started working with ACF and it is freakin awesome. I just happened to notice today that the HTML in the WYSIWYG seemed to be minified and then came across this post. I would be very happy if it can be made to emulate the native WordPress editor, but I also understand if it is an issue with tinyMCE object.
