Other Changing the editor of my submitted paper

Dear,

I have submitted a paper currently to one journal of physics. The first revision had 5 point. In the second revision four of them was answered satisfactory, but the point 5 was comented and add other two new coments. After this, the revision changed of editor.

What could be the reason of the change of editor?.
The processed starts from zero with the new editor?. Are new referees?
It is a ill signal that one month has passed from the new editor?.

Who are you addressing? And who are you calling "Dear"?

Why can't you write to the journal and ask?

The change in editor could be due to anything really, including many reasons that have nothing to do with your paper... illness, editor stepping down, family emergency etc.

I would expect that the whole process won't start over since they already have referee reports, but the editors do run the show and so the new one does have that option. If it's really bothering you, as Zz suggested you can contact the journal.
