Airtable - what have you done to the look of expanded records. It’s AWFUL. I’ve had a whole morning of my colleagues ringing me and asking what I’ve done to the look and begging me to change it back. Does anyone else share their revulsion?

Hi David, whilst I am usually welcome to change, I too agree, this new format is very hard to read.
When a record is expanded it is difficult to follow which data I am now inputting with too big a gap from the field description. Airtable, please revert back to the old system or make the descriptions closer to the data entry fields.

Airtable refers to this monstrosity as an “improvement”.

Saaaaaame. samesamesame. I can’t see anything. Text is too light, there are no bounds around text fields so text just floats, there is far too much white space, etc. Everyone on my team is having an incredibly hard time seeing, reading and editing records. I appreciate the attempt, but this one doesn’t work.
