Difference between the old editor and the new Advanced Editor
Before diving into the new features of Advanced Editor, let’s compare it to the old one. So you can figure out the differences sharply.
The big change in the new editor is its user interface which is completely different than the old editor, both visually and in terms of functionality.
In the old editor, you had to select form fields from the right-side panel and scroll down frequently to add any product fields or payment method fields.
The Advanced Editor lets you add any field directly in the form editor like Gutenberg. Simply type ‘/’ or click on the + icon to pop up all fields you want to add.

Besides, editing and deleting multiple fields using the old editor was a little time-consuming. You had to click on each field separately to reveal the Delete button. However, you can delete or configure any field in the Advanced Editor by simply hovering the mouse over the field.
You can undo or redo any step you have done in the new Advanced Editor. Click on the Undo or Redo button on the top or press Ctrl+Z /Ctrl+Shift+Z as a keyboard shortcut.
