Excluding steps in Octopus 4.x

I really dislike the UI for excluding steps in Octopus 4 vs previous versions. It is unusable to me.

It is very cumbersome and error prone to skip steps or only run certain steps versus the previous 1 step per line UI toggle.

My main project has 18 steps with 6 unrelated environments, most deployments do not need a full release of all services (Web and Windows) and usually start with Skip All and then switching on which steps i want to deploy, or i deploy all Web projects and exclude a few windows services.

Is there a better way to do this? But currently this UI is not usable - you can only see what is excluded not included.

Is it only me?
