Description

Using Raster -> Projections -> Warp, it is possible to edit the command line handed over to gdalwarp before executing with a small pencil icon. With that, additional parameters can be set easily.

The Processing GDAL/OGR geoalgoritm Warp does not offer this ability.

I suggest to add the pencil to the processing form as well.

This appears to be an issue in QGIS 3.0, there is no pencil in any dialogue box. Running 3.0.0 64-bit on Win 7

By removing the ability to edit the GDAL command, this is a retrograde step because many of the defaults that are set are not appropriate (eg forcing output to Float32 when you are clipping an 8-bit raster. Instead of a simple tweak, we are now forced to use a commandline interface such as the Python console or step out of QGIS altogether, just to tweak a command. This was a feature that many users relyed on and I can't understand why, if we had it before, it is impossible to restore it for V3?

as far as I have understand is not obvious in the context of the Processing toolbox. One could think to resuscitate the GDAL tools plugin as a 3rd party plugin for QGIS 3.
