Does anyone else think this “new” block editor is horrible? What’s the rationale behind this change? And why does WP think this format is better than the older way of writing?
- Are they trying to minimize the formatting tools options that used to run along the top? Those tools are COMMON to any word type document user.
- Where are the visual indication of where the page margins are? It’s a bit disconcerting since I usually rely on those indicators
- I think at the very minimum having a visual indicators of the BLOCK itself would be a good change.
- Once you switch to using this editor, there are compatibility issues after switching back to the classic editor
Using a layout block in dual column option… the lack of borders is really disconcerting since it now seems like the two columns are super wide and will basically ruin the width setting of the theme. I don’t know if there is a positive benefit in being able to change the column color.
AND then you can also use a classic editor in the new block editor? What the fuck?
And then you can have multiple “blocks” within a dual column? This clearly going to fuck up with the HTML settings
Removing blocks also isn’t that intuitive at times. Need to click on the block (good luck trying to find the right block), then find the little pop up, then click on the three dots to see the option. Highlighting text would be much faster but you know what? It still leaves a “block” in it’s place as opposed to fully being deleted.
I also don’t understand why a new paragraph warrants a new block.
Although SHIFT+ENTER seems to keep them in the same block.
And what does group do? Seems a bit pointless since it combines them all into 1 large block but still with various “sub blocks”… which again leads me to the need to have some sort of demarcation of the various blocks within the editor.
What is VERSE block? roses are red violets are blue WP blocks just screwed you Oh that's interesting... it keeps it all neatly under one large block.
And where do i format the "preformatted" options? Because font and size look different
seriously this is stupid
