Editing and previewing collection items workflow before the ability to edit them in the visual developer was complex and could be confusing for new customers.
You can now easily edit collections and items inside the visual developer by double clicking an element that is linked to an item. This also works for elements inside a collection list.
Along side this update we added the ability to view and select related collection pages and components. This will make it faster to navigate to the right place.
Publishing was also cleaned up, you can now publish an item from the visual developer as well as the CMS text editor.
Shortcuts also allow you to quickly access the collection and item settings.
