That is a very old topic, I’m sure there are newer ones.
I don’t see where I mentioned guberbug in that topic so you may mean a different one. If I did mention that then it would have had to be before the new editor was added and I don’t use it. It’s not likely that it will help unless you can use block for everything.
With that number of fields I would defiantly look at a different way to build it.
