Plain queries in grafana 9

I’m not sure if I’m missing something here, but I’ve upgraded to grafana 9, and writing raw queries like before isn’t presented as an option at all anymore. I understand that the new system is supposed to make things easier (and I guess it does in a certain way), but I have no issues writing plain prometheus metrics.

So my question is, can you still write plain metrics so that you can test various values really fast in grafana or do I have to click through all those options every time I want to change the slightest thing?

Ok, it seems that if you press “Code” in the far right of the query, you can write the query as is. A rather frustrating experience until I actually got to understand how it works.
