Allow manual update of the JSON content

It would be really useful to allow for the JSON of a page to be updated.

I needed to rename some of my components, and the only way to do this in the Visual Editor is to remove and add the component back to the page

Need to change these

I know that I could do this via the admin API, but it would be nice to do it in the UI.

    So embarrassed, I use that window all the time, and never once did it occur to me to try and type in it. Thank you!

    Oh you can totally do this now. If you hit cmd+e with a layer selected (or none) you get the JSON editor. You can also get to that window by going to the data tab and clicking the "json" button. For bulk changes - you can script the visual editor
