Why is Shopify intentionally ruining the bulk editor?

7 0 5

I don't understand the changes being made to the bulk editor


- The cells cannot be expanded. This is ridiculous for tags, products with long vendor names and etc

- If you have more than 50+ tags, the tag editor is terrible. The selected ones don't show up at the top, you have to scroll down a list and that list randomly disappears.

-The layout is worse


Honestly, this feels like a money grab. I NEVER had any issues with the old bulk editor and I had hundreds of products to edit on a weekly basis. I feel like they made it worse, to push folks to paid apps.

Not ideal? Not usable.

I'm also frustrated with the bulk editor. I'd like to edit the prices on all the items in a collection--no go, you can't bring those up together.  It's just not made for people who need to get a lot of work done quickly.
