The new format for sources is terrible...cannot find "review attachments" & opening the source does
& opening the source does NOT show what the info is - just goes to some other view of the extraction, see--https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:XCQP-RGH?from=lynx1UIV8&treeref=LJ2D-1LJ - no "review attachments"... PLEASE tell me this function (review attachments) is STILL there SOMEPLACE ... this new format is so scattered & inefficient. It makes finding mistakes so much harder (hides them better).

The "review attachments" function is the paper-with-clip icon to the right of the name under "Attached in Family Tree to". It opens Source Linker, which is what "review attachments" does as well.
I also dislike the new format with a passion; it wastes screen on meaningless fluff and hides all of the actual information under "more..."-type buttons/links. This seems to be the current style in web design: "you want to see? really? OK... just kidding! You'll have to work harder than that!"4
It looks like this person attached the 1930 census to Lee Verhelst using the url, & not the "review & attach" button. Is this a new way or is it a mistaken way? The New format for viewing a source is confusing & imprecise. Bigger letters would be okay but wider spacing just makes for more area to cover & coordinate. What exactly were you trying to accomplish with more clicks needed to view the people's info? The visual impression is intimidating - lots of stuff all over the place to be looked at - newbies really don't need more of that. Neither do oldies. Compactness is less overwhelming. Bigger is not necessarily better. Don't improve yourself right out of functionality.3

Plenty of users have complained about this. I believe somebody posted that this type of display is more in line with the mobile version - it certainly doesn't blend-in with the rest of the pages on the PC one.
Fortunately, use of the Back button (and I forget how else) gets you back to the old-style page, from which it is far easier to attach sources - especially to multiple individuals.
Even if a majority of users continue to hate it, I fear we are now stuck with this type of view.1
Agree @Julia Szent-Györgyi The details of the record location of the record are hidden under "Document Information."
FindMyPast has just made a similar change - hiding the "report an error" option under "More Actions" when "report an error" is the only thing under that button.1
Thanks for validating the complaint - making things harder to accomplish is NOT the way to "hasten the work". And thanks for the clue as to where to find stuff HIDDEN away under vague "more" terms & cute little icons with no labels.1
