Agreed on all points, @ukstudio. ACF is a stunningly valuable tool and local JSON is far and away the best new feature of 5. Still, while I’ve gotten comfortable editing fields and fieldgroups in plain JSON, it’d be great to at least be able to pop in to the GUI editor to make quick changes. Especially since things like slugs and field keys (or other WP/ACF auto-generated values) are not exacty easy to edit/add/maintain by hand!
