R2021b has a new editor compared to R2021a. Is there any way to revert to the previous editor? The new version is much more graphically intensive and feels sluggish compared to the simple text editor in the previous version. Also, it renders the Monospaced font differently than the previous version, resulting in the editor font looking completely different to the command window font, which hasn't changed, despite them both using Monospaced.
For comparison, the editor from R2021a:
and the editor from R2021b:
If there is no way to revert the look of the editor, is there at least a way to have it use the same Monospaced font as the command window?

I agree. Even 2022b editor is sluggish, font not consistent. They need to bring the old editor back.

I changed these settings and it greatly improved the font for me:
s = settings;
s.matlab.fonts.custom.editor.FontToUse.PersonalValue = "CustomFont";
s.matlab.fonts.custom.editor.Name.PersonalValue = "Courier New";
s.matlab.fonts.custom.editor.Size.PersonalValue = 12; % in point

This leads to a significantly improved font (in my opinion).
