@Haritomedia I'm confused as to what the problem is. The Donation Field was deprecated because it essentially does nothing different than the Product Field so we saw no point in having a separate field that does the same thing.
The Donation Field was removed from Gravity Forms, although it does support forms that were created with prior versions of Gravity Forms that do use the Donation Field.
The latest version of the PayPal Add-On was also updated so that it doesn't require the Donation Field and it now uses Product Fields. It still supports Donation Fields for forms created with older versions of Gravity Forms.
Can you explain what exactly the issue with using a Product Field is? You mention Radio Buttons but the Product Field has multiple field types that you can use, radio buttons is just one of them. There is a Single Product, Drop Down, Radio Button, User Defined and Hidden product field types available from within the Product Field itself.
See this screenshot which shows each of the different field types available in a Product Field:
So you have other field types you can use with the Product Field. They are available when you edit a Product Field on your form. Select the Field Type drop down and select the type you want to use. See this screenshot:
As for radio buttons not making sense or being confused, i'm not sure what exactly you mean. The old donation field had a radio button option also, it's no different.
The only difference between the Product Field and the Donation Field is the Donation Field didn't have as many options as the Product Field and when adding it to your form the field label defaulted to saying Donation. But the field label can say whatever you want it to say so that is of no consequence.
What exactly doesn't the Product Field accomplish that you are trying to do?
In the future please post your own support forum request. Don't post on someone else's support forum post, you'll get a quicker response by posting your own request by creating a new forum post.
