Upgraded K1000 and "Run a Batch File" in Scripts no longer offers text field

We use scripts to install local printers throughout our org.  I set them up as Offline Scripts.  The script checks to see if the printer is already installed, and if not, it unzips the drivers and runs a batch file to install the printer.  This was especially convenient because we have lots of printers and we could just change the variables for IP address and printer name as assign the script to another computer.  However, we were a few versions behind on our K1000 and I just recently upgraded to 13.2.  This is the first time I'm creating a new printer script since the upgrade and I noticed that the layout of "Run a batch file" command changed - it looks more like KACE wants us to upload the batch instead of editing directly in the script.  My old scripts still work, but it's ugly and difficult to modify moving forward.  

Do we know if this is by design?  The batch file field used to be a text box where you could see multiple lines.  Is there a better way to set up printers that's as simple as what I was doing before?

I noticed this too. Is this as designed or not?
